Touring artists

On behalf of flat-top guitar players, thanks to Nigel Martyn whose Old Flattop agency is presenting two highly regarded US guitarists from outside the bluegrass field, Frank Vignola and Vinny Raniolo (above), with special guest David Browne-Murray. Their tastes are wide-ranging, with the string jazz of Django Reinhardt an obvious influence, and they have played with such musicians as Mark O'Connor, David Grisman, and Tommy Emmanuel. Their current tour dates are:

Fri. 28th-Sun. 30th Sept.: Inishowen Guitar Festival, Culdaff, Co. Donegal
Mon. 1st Oct.: Crane Bar, Galway city
Tues. 2nd Oct.: Village Arts Centre, Kilworth, Co. Cork
Wed. 3rd Oct.: Whelan's, Dublin 2
Thurs. 4th Oct.: Black Box, Belfast


Loudon Temple of the Brookfield Knights agency in Britain sends word that the Hillfolk Noir trio (Travis, slide guitar/ dobro/ lead vocals); Ali Ward, banjo/ washboard/ percussion/ singing saw, vocals; Michael Waite, double bass) from Boise, Idaho, will be touring in these islands from 7 June to 30 June 2013. Presenters and promoters who would like to receive a copy of the band's last album, Radio Hour, or wish to book them for a slot in this time period, should contact Loudon by e-mail.
