Foghorn Trio for IBMA official showcase

As we mentioned on Friday, the Foghorn Trio from Portland, Oregon, will be over here in May for an all-too-brief tour. We have just heard (thanks to the Prescription Bluegrass Blog) that the Foghorn Trio are among the thirteen bands that have been invited to be part of the 2011 'official showcase' lineup during the Business Conference section of the IBMA World of Bluegrass 2011 (26 Sept.-2 Oct.).

Performing on an IBMA official showcase is widely regarded as one of the most important career opportunities in the bluegrass world. The full list of official showcase artists for World of Bluegrass 2011 can be read here. The splendid Czech band Monogram, who have played in Ireland, are also on the list.

The Foghorn Trio consists of Stephen 'Sammy' Lind (fiddle, banjo, guitar, vocals), Caleb Klauder (mandolin, guitar, fiddle, vocals), and Nadine Landry (guitar, bass, vocals).

[Update 30 Mar.:Thanks to Nadine Landry for the latest news of the Trio's tour schedule, which will see them playing at the Baltimore Fiddle Fair in Co. Cork on 7 May, and every night for the next seven nights after the Fair, in Munster, Connacht, and Leinster; full details are on the BIB calendar.]
