signforfestIts that time of year again and having missed the Willie Clancy week its time for music and chat at the South Sligo Summer School in Tubbercurry a small town in South East Sligo Its the festivals 25 year and promises to be a good one.

  This is my favourite festival, its not too big and attracts a great crowd of musicians and listeners alike.
