Using the Bluegrass Ireland Blog

The front page of the BIB shows about two weeks of posts. A post older than that automatically moves to the archive; so if you've already used the BIB and can't find a post that you saw before, check the links to the archive sections or use the search slot at the top left-hand corner of the blog, between the Blogger symbol and the 'Follow' link (though from experience we find that this facility is not completely reliable).

Click on any photo to see an enlarged version. Click on the label at the end of a post to see all posts that have a similar label. To comment on any post, click on the 'Comments' symbol at the end of it.

The most important feature is the calendar, which is updated at least once a week. To reach it, use one of the links to the right of this. To send in news for the calendar - or for any other reason - contact the editor. For the solid, enduring features of the scene in this island, as distinct from the flow of events, use another of the links to reach Kevin Gill's Bluegrass in Ireland website.

For UK news, use the links to UKBluegrass.com (which has an events calendar) or the BBMA website; for news from all over Europe, the European Bluegrass Blog; and for the hottest news from the Mother Country, Bluegrass Today (formerly the original Bluegrass Blog) and the Prescription Bluegrass Blog. So: in general, US and UK news is posted on the Bluegrass Ireland Blog only in exceptional circumstances.

Hi Richard, if you're looking to listen to Blugrass radios, feel free to check out Streema's directory: http://www.streema.com/radios/bluegrass

Hi Richard,

Just stumbled onto your blog and I plan to visit often. I run a banjo-centric blog in the states (see address in signature) and it's always fun to connect with bluegrassers "across the pond". Keep up the good work and maybe say hi on my blog sometime.
