Molly Hicks in Americana month at Campbell's, Co. Galway, 12 Nov. 2011

Thanks to Ruth Dillon (on left in the photo), who writes:

The gingham curtains have been hung and the cowboy boots and hats have been dusted down this November for a month of Americana-themed events (such as line dancing, country/bluegrass gigs, quilt making, steak eating!) at the very cool Campbell's Tavern, Cloghanover, Headford, Co. Galway.

Fans of the Molly Hicks are in for a treat this Saturday (12 Nov.) as they grace the Campbell's stage with their six-piece lineup for what is promised to be another exciting show from the band, who combine the sweetest harmonies with dynamic instrumental tunes and driving rhythms.

Ruth Dillon (vocals/guitar) and Bernie O'Mahony (vocals/banjolele) will be joined by Peter Akerstrom (vocals/flatpicking guitar), Paul O'Driscoll (double bass), Juliana Erkonen (fiddle) and Geoff Ward (mandolin). Fresh from their success at many of the major festivals during the summer, including the recent Balla Bluegrass Festival, the band continues to perfect their unique sound, adding original songs, penned by Ruth, as well as traditional bluegrass songs and fiddle tunes. You're going to find yourself singing and dancing, and will go home with an elated spirit!

Don't miss this chance to catch them, in such an atmospheric gem of a venue as Campbell's Tavern. Admission: €10.
