Vincent Cross: dates in Ireland, 30 July-13 Aug. 2011

Thanks to Vincent Cross, back in Ireland from the USA (where he has been in good company; see left), for this news:

I've been finalising gigs, but thought you'd like to know that I'll be playing in various counties throughout Ireland during July and August. The full details are below... I will be fortunate to have Sean McKerr and Tom Portman as good company for a number of the gigs, and I hope to be sharing some new material from my upcoming album. Of course there will be many unscheduled sessions, and the more thrilling for it.

July 30th The Greystones Americana & Roots Weekend, Greystones, Co. Wicklow. Time: 9.00 p.m. (20 min. solo slot)
This is a free event with loads of bands and picking going on. Last year there was an abundance of sessions, a good old-timey atmosphere, dueling banjos, and a full pig-on-a-spit barbecue for that down-home authenticity.

Aug. 6th The Session, Spells Pub, Pound St., Ballaghadereen, Co. Roscommon. Time: 9.00 p.m.-11.00 p.m.
I will be playing with the ubiquitous Tom Portman on Dobro.

Aug. 7th The Sunday Sessions, Tigh Neachtain, Galway city. Time: 9.00 p.m.-11.00 p.m.
I will be playing with the ubiquitous Tom Portman on Dobro in probably the most famous pub in Galway. Tigh Neachtain's strong connection with Galway’s arts and musical communities adds to the allure of its already welcoming interior. We are expecting guests, so this should be a cool chilled-out night.

Aug. 12th Whelans (Upstairs), Dublin 2. Time: starts 8.00 p.m.
I will be joined by the versatile Sean McKerr on mandolin and sheer enthusiasm. There are a number of cool bluegrass and roots bands* at this gig, so come early and enjoy them all.
*Including Well Enough Alone (also on MySpace) and the Lazy Band.

Aug. 13th Geraghty's pub, the Octagon, Westport, Co. Mayo. Tel. 098 25565. 10.15 p.m.-12.30 a.m.

Had a chance to hear Vincent in Greystones at the Americana and Roots festival, although he had to compete with the drinkers his singing and playing made you stop and listen, Had a great chat with him and his miss's and had enough forethought to buy his new CD off him, Excellent if you can get yourself to see him and grab yourself a CD you wont be dissapointed
