About Bluegrass Omagh

There’ll be strumming on the porches, dancing in the cobbled streets and jamming outside the General Store as the sound of bluegrass fills the air at Ulster American Folk Park for Bluegrass Omagh 2020.

Over 29 years, the annual Bluegrass Omagh Festival has grown and developed to become one of the largest events of its kind outside North America, attracting on average 7,000 visitors each year from Northern Ireland, Republic of Ireland, Great Britain and Europe.

Having received international praise from visitors, artists and media, the festival has been recognised by professional associations across the globe and has been nominated for multiple awards throughout its time, including Bluegrass Event of the Year by the International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA).

A beacon for home-grown and international bluegrass talent, Bluegrass Omagh is responsible for bringing the best American, Canadian, European, UK and Irish bands to Omagh each year and celebrating a genre that has been loved for generations.

Moving to its new slot in May this year, the festival will welcome over 15 award-winning bands, including Headline Act, Appalachian Roadshow, direct from the USA.
