Bending the Strings video debut on Showcase TV next week

Bending the Strings bluegrass band have been spending a lot of time recently shooting a new video for their highly successful single and album title track, 'All keyed up'. The song was written specially for the album by the band's guitarist, Vinny Baker, and proved to be a very popular choice with radio DJs around the country, including top National Radio 1 DJs Ronan Collins, John Creedon, Lillian Smith and Alf McCarthy, and the album was also voted Top Bluegrass Album for 2010 by Leinster Entertainment Awards.

But now the video is ready to go, and it debuts on International Sky TV channel Showcase TV's 'Hot Country' show on Sky 201 and Free to Air 403 on Monday next (22 Aug.) at 8.00 p.m., Tuesday 23rd at 2.00 p.m., Saturday 27th at 2.00 p.m., and Sunday 23rd at 8 p.m. The video is a six-minute, hilarious sketch featuring the band in a story of a keyboard player (Moyra) looking for a job with a bluegrass band who have advertised for a mandolin player. At first they were dubious; but when they heard her play Bluegrass on the Keys, she got the job. A true story...

Tune in and have a look at 'All keyed up: the video' - you will really enjoy it. Looking forward to seeing you all at Dunmore East at the end of the month.
