Festival favourites from just up the road, this local band who are in high demand throughout the country and beyond continue to bring their eclectic mix of traditional and contemporary material to a wide Bluegrass audience. Back in 1994 when the newly formed Knotty Pine String Band first appeared at the Bluegrass Festival in the Ulster American Folk Park, nobody knew just what the future held in store for the band.
Over the following years the band went on to appear at all the major festivals in both Ireland and the UK and were the first Irish band to appear at the European World of Bluegrass Festival in Holland. Knotty Pine is still a major force in the Bluegrass scene both at home and abroad. The band continues to entertain and captivate their audience in the same engaging way that first awarded them recognition.
