I guess its 'mad for trad'
I occassionally play down at Crosskeys and enjoyed when the Cavan ones came up I was really tired but it fun playing a solo and starting a few tunes on the flute, whistle and keyboard!

Thought this GnB was great and the R H Chilly pipers were class (entertainment for all)
How about bringing Seth Lakeman to next years event. Saw him in Belfast recently and think he would fit in well at the GnB. (check him out on youtube)
Thanks, again for a great event.
Thanks MJ for the kind words,Seth was at festival a few years ago as part of Cara Dillons Band. Certainly add him to the list of possibilities.

What a BIG disappointment.  Lots of musicians who walked about but never actually played.  There was no atmosphere on the street or in the bars will definately be giving it a miss from now on
Dont criticise if you cannot be brave enough to put your name to it!! It is not a street festival or a bar festival what happens in the bars is not our responsibility. Where were you when the pipe bands were parading , or the childrens fun park on the sunday morning or perhaps you missed prayer on the bann too all events which had plenty of atmosphere to the street!!!
