The inaugural Ribbon Rhythm Festival will provide a weekend of great music in aid of a good cause in the Mount Errigal Hotel in Letterkenny on Friday, February 26, and Saturday 27, 2011.
This brand new two-day musical spectacular has already attracted a stellar line-up of acts and it is planned to run it on an annual basis. The 2011 festival will raise much-needed funds for the Donegal Autism Parents Support Group and to increase awareness of its work in the county.
