High Plains Tradition visit - and more
Thanks to Ray O'Brien for this news from Steve Gilmore, guitarist of the magnificent Colorado band High Plains Tradition, who will be back in Ireland for the third time in January 2014 (see the BIB post for 23 September 2013).
Steve reports that his son Martin Gilmore will be coming over with HPT. Martin is lead singer and guitarist for another Colorado band, Long Road Home. which features many top-class musicians including Pete Wernick ('Dr Banjo'); Gene Libbea of the Nashville Bluegrass Band played bass for them till about a year ago, and still does whenever they are near where he is. In this YouTube video of Long Road Home playing 'Ninety-nine years', Pete Wernick is on banjo, his Hot Rize colleague Nick Forster is on bass, and Martin is singing the demanding lead vocal.
The band's tour schedule in Ireland is on their website tour page, on the BIB post for 23 September, and on the BIB calendar.
