Carter Brothers hit the Road to Roosky

Thanks to the original Bluegrass Blog for news of the Carter Brothers (USA), favourites with audiences at the annual Johnny Keenan Banjo Festival in Longford, where they will be appearing again this coming September.

The brothers, Dan and Tim, have just finished recording a new album at their Treehouse Studio near Nashville. The album - which they describe as a 'blues record', and which includes as guest artist the legendary Sam Bush, not to mention some previously unreleased material recorded with the late Vassar Clements - comprises eleven tracks, seven of which are Carter Brothers originals.

And the title? Road to Roosky, named after Roosky, Co. Roscommon, just off the N4 north of Longford. Roosky is a favourite place with the Carter Brothers while in Ireland, and Tim describes it as 'very magical'. Read more about the album, and see photos and a video of the Carters, on the Bluegrass Blog.
