Bending the Strings play Mullingar Park Hotel next Sat night., 26 Nov. 2011

Thanks to BTS for this news:

Martin Cooney, Moyra Fraser, Gerry Madden, and Vinny Baker, collectively known as Bending the Strings, play Mullingar's Park Hotel, next Saturday night (26 November). Kickoff is at 10.00 p.m.

The band are currently working on their second album, the follow-up to their very successful All keyed up album. The new album will be the band's first recordings with the addition of Gerry Madden on mandolin; is in the mixing stage at guitarist Vinny Baker's Veebee Recording Studio outside Mullingar; and was recorded mostly live in the studio with a minimum of overdubs - and indeed, the live feel comes across on the album. There will be a mix of classic bluegrass songs, trad fiddle tunes, original compositions, and the trademark trad/modern bluegrass sound of Bending the Strings band.

A title for the album has not yet been decided on, but watch the blog for further news. We hope to see all our friends in the Mullingar Park Hotel next Saturday night, 26 November.
