Banjo Burke Festival celebrates fourth year

"The fourth annual Banjo Burke Festival will take place in East Durham on Columbus Weekend, October 8-11. The festival affords attendees the opportunity to enjoy traditional music, dance and Irish hospitality amidst the beautiful fall foliage of Greene County’s Catskills.

This year will feature a completely new schedule, offering four workshops for the same low price. A series of Ceili workshops will be taught by John Bergin and Pat Kane. Ron Bruschi and Marie Newman will teach set dances, including pointers on footwork. If you have always been an on-looker, or have tried it but still feel unsure of the steps, these are the sessions for you."
