Night of Americana in Roscrea, 10 Dec. 2011

Thanks to Tom Stapleton, doyen of Americana promoters in Ireland, for news of a special night of Americana music and song, to be held at the Damer Court Hotel, Roscrea, Co. Tipperary, on Saturday 10 December 2011. And there's a discount on the price of admission for anyone who is on Tom's mailing list.

The show features Americana music and song from Bill Monroe to Gillian Welch, including favourites from the film O brother where art thou?, and the lineup includes Ireland's senior old-time and bluegrass group, the Lee Valley String Band (see the lads on YouTube), who offer 'an understanding and delivery of traditional American music that is not time-dependent', according to Folk Roots magazine.

Also appearing is New Yorker Ari Hest (see him on YouTube, too). Doors open at the Damer Court at 8.30 p.m. and tickets are €15 at the door or €10 for mailing list subscribers. Call 087-2238040.

Update 29 Nov.: Tom has just generously extended the same discount to BIB readers, who should call the same number.
