Michael J. Miles in Ireland, May 2011

The BIB is delighted to announce that Michael J. Miles (USA), one of the most remarkable 5-string banjo players now alive, will be making two very special appearances in Ireland later this month, after performing in the Lebanon and the UK.

Both of them will take place at the Seamus Ennis Cultural Centre at Naul, Co. Dublin, which has hosted many fine acts in bluegrass and related music. Michael will be playing in concert on Friday 27 May at 8.30 p.m., and the following afternoon he will be giving a clawhammer banjo workshop at 1.30 p.m. and a fingerstyle guitar workshop at 3.30 p.m. Entry fee for each workshop is €10.00, which is an astounding bargain with an artist of this calibre. Not to mention that the Centre will be putting on the Wilders that evening (28 May); it really looks as if the best course might be to buy a house in Naul...

Samples from all the tracks on Michael's new CD, col-lage, can be heard on CD Baby. There is also an online press kit with photos and audio tracks. His latest e-newsletter can be seen here.
