Dublin venue wanted for the Toy Hearts, 6 [not 5] Nov. 2011: update

Thanks to Mick Dunne, formerly of the Skillet Lickers band of Drogheda, and Paul Lee of the Musiclee.ie agency, for the welcome news that the Toy Hearts (GB) will be touring in Ireland in early November 2011. Dates at present on the schedule are:

Wed. 2nd: The Crane Bar, Galway city, 8.00 p.m.
Thurs. 3rd: Seamus Ennis Cultural Centre, Naul, Co. Dublin, 8.00 p.m.
Fri. 4th: Boyles, Slane, Co. Meath, 8.00 p.m.
Sat. 5th: Balor Arts Centre, Ballybofey, Co. Donegal
Sun 6th: Dublin, TBC

The Toy Hearts are keen to play a Dublin city venue while over here. Paul has been trying hard to find one not already booked for the only suitable date, 6 November, and will be glad to hear from anyone who can offer a venue. He writes: 'Any ideas welcome. Even a house party at this stage could fit the bill. Check them out here.' Contact Paul by e-mail.

The photo above (from Aran Sheehan) shows the Toy Hearts playing at the Dunmore East festival in 2007. They have also played at the Omagh festival, at IBMA's World of Bluegrass and elsewhere in the USA, at the major European festivals at Voorthuizen (NL), La Roche (F), and Bühl (D), and innumerable other festivals and venues in Britain and Europe. Sophia Johnson (far right, above) has also been featured in Flatpicking Guitar Magazine.
