The Wiyos - back in Ireland, 14-17 Feb. 2012

Loudon Temple, of the Brookfield Knights agency in the UK, reported back in August 2011 that the Wiyos (USA) would be back in these islands in Feb. 2012, anchored by their appearance at the Celtic Connections festival in Glasgow. Two dates were at that time given as open for Ireland. It now appears that the band will be playing four dates in this island, beginning with a return appearance at the Ubangi Stomp Club, Dublin city (where they played last April), and ending at Naul, Co. Dublin. All four dates are on the BIB calendar.

In April 2011 the Wiyos' shows in Ireland included Clonmel World Music, where the show sold out in advance. And by the way - the first Clonmel World Music show for 2012 will be on Thursday 2 Feb., featuring Zoe Muth & the Lost High Rollers from Seattle, USA. This is an alt.country band including electric guitar, electric bass, and drums, but with a lot of lead mandolin and some bluegrass-compatible songs. Check them out on YouTube.
