The pipes, the pipes are calling...

Thanks to Niall Toner, who reports on the latest show by the Niall Toner Band and developments with his latest single commemorating the Father of Bluegrass:

We played a super gig yesterday in Banbridge during the Pipe Band Championships. What an appreciative audience! The weather was a little inclement, to say the least, but we were in a marquee, and it was a really enjoyable experience. This was our 'replacement' show for Derry, and we were booked to return for two shows there in 2012.

'William Smith Monroe' [see the BIB for 1 July] is being featured as a new release on Dave Cash's BBC Radio Kent (which also goes out to all BBC Local Radio Stations around Britain) show, and continues to be played on US radio.

The current issue of Hot Press magazine (p. 14) and p. 48 of the current issue of RTE Guide (right) both include features on the Monroe centenary and on the impact made by Niall's new commemorative recording.
