Thanks to Nigel Martyn for news of shows in Belfast and tours throughout this island that are being presented by his Old Flattop agency between now and the end of the year. The many notable artists on the schedule include Arlo Guthrie, Gretchen Peters, Mary Coughlan, and Frank Vignola & Vinny Raniolo.
Of greatest interest to BIB readers will be the Curtis Blackwell Bluegrass Band (USA; above), who will be touring from 13 to 24 June, opening with a show in Belfast. All their dates are on the BIB calendar; full details for other Old Flattop artists are on the OF website.
