Bluegrass Spectacular at White Horse Black Mountain, 3 Oct. 2012

Following on from yesterday's news of Irish artists in the current IBMA World of Bluegrass in Nashville, TN, we note that next Wednesday (3 Oct.) the White Horse Black Mountain performance centre in Black Mountain, North Carolina, will present a Bluegrass Spectacular, featuring the award-winning Lonesome River Band (above) and Ireland's own Niall Toner and I Draw Slow. Events at White Horse Black Mountain include regular jam sessions of Irish music.

Update 30 Sept.: On Sat. 6 Oct. Niall will be part of the 'Song of the Mountains' concert/TV series from Marion, Virginia, sharing the bill with the Chuck Wagon Gang (founded 1936, the longest established mixed gospel quartet), the Jonny Possum Band from New Zealand, Virginia natives Hollow Ground, and our Chicago-based friends Special Consensus. The show is widely broadcast on public TV but receives no funding; so the future of 'Song of the Mountains' depends on the next week's support for its Kickstarter project. Read more here.
