These photos were taken by Irene Doyle at the 2008 New Richmond Bluegrass Festival on the weekend of August 29. It was a great and I mean GREAT weekend once again this year. Great people, great company, good weather and great bands, unbelievable music and voices from young and old, incredible talent, weather was super during the day, a little cool at night.

Thank you so much to all you entertainers, to the MCs, to the volunteers, the Heritage Village, the Festival Committee and everyone who had anything to do with it. It was SUPERB and I hope to see you all again next year.

Please take note that the photos on here have been made a lot smaller to be placed on the Internet so they wouldnt take up too much space on the server. This is also only a few of the pics I took, I have many others. If any of the band members would like to have a good copy of any of the photos, please contact me at:


Please put Festival photos or New Richmond photos in the subject
otherwise your email may end up in the trash box :)
