A few days ago the BIB announced that Elephant Revival (USA) will be appearing at two shows in Ireland later this month, one of which will be at the Raheen House Hotel, Clonmel, Co. Tipperary, as part of the Clonmel World Music series.
Gerry Lawless at Clonmel World Music already has an active programme drawn up for the first half of the New Year; it is shown on the CWM website as seen below, where the links are to performance videos of the bands:
Elephant Revival (USA), Tues. 28 Jan.
The Stray Birds (USA), Thurs. 13 Feb.
The Revelers (USA), Thurs. 27 Mar.
Birds Of Chicago (USA), Thurs. 8 May
The Paperboys (CAN), Wed. 4 June
At present the only information available on other dates in Ireland to be played by these bands is for the Stray Birds (see photo above), a three-piece with hard-edged trio vocals and Monroesque mandolin work who should be a treat for fans of traditional bluegrass. Their schedule is:
Tues. 11 Feb.: The Red Room, Cookstown, Co. Tyrone
Wed. 12 Feb.: The Black Box, Belfast, 7.00 p.m.
Thurs. 13 Feb.: Raheen House Hotel, Clonmel, Co. Tipperary
Fri. 14 Feb.: The Lodge, Mallow, Co. Cork
Sat. 15 Feb.: Regional Cultural Centre, Letterkenny, Co. Donegal
Sun. 16 Feb.: Whelan's, Dublin 2
Schedules for Cajun supergroup The Revelers and for Birds of Chicago and the Paperboys will be published on the BIB as soon as we learn the details.
