New Rope String Band available for dates in Ireland, Mar. 2013
Thanks to the Brookfield Knights agency in Britain for the news that the New Rope String Band (UK) will be available for dates in Scotland and Ireland between 8 and 17 March 2013. Three years ago the BIB wrote (and we see no reason to change this judgment):
The New Rope String Band (also on MySpace) continue the tradition of the Old Rope String Band, who played at the Cork Folk Festival some years ago and are probably the funniest band your editor has seen on any stage. The NRSB should be considered by any event organiser over here - after their show, some of the audience will certainly say: 'That's not bluegrass!' The rest will be laughing too much to say anything.
The agency can be contacted through their website.
