Coal Porters at Cork Midsummer Festival, 18 June 2011

The Coal Porters (UK/USA), already well known to audiences in Ireland, will be taking part in the Cork Midsummer Festival (11-26 June 2011).

As shown on the Festival website, they will play in concert at Murphy's Spiegeltent, beginning at 7.30 p.m. on Saturday 18 June. Doors open at 7.00 p.m.; tickets are €15 (€12 concession).

The Coal Porters, who played at the International Bluegrass Music Museum in Owensboro, KY, in February 2011, have received very favourable reviews for their recordings and live shows. The Festival website quotes:

The Coal Porters are internationally recognised for their exuberant live shows which show them at their best. They are now firmly established on the UK touring circuit as the best acoustic bluegrass act around — the 'Clash of Bluegrass' is an acoustic act with attitude!

Full bio details for the Coal Porters, together with quotes from reviews, performance videos, and more, can be seen at the website of Adastra, the leading UK agency for roots and acoustic music; on YouTube; on Twitter, and on Facebook. And there's more! See the links on their homepage.
