The Nation & Blackwell Bluegrass Band (USA): (l-r) Gary Davis, Chuck Nation, Curtis Blackwell, Susan Nation
Nigel Martyn's schedule for the Nation & Blackwell Bluegrass Band tour (see the BIB for 3 Jan.) mentioned a 'house concert' on 25 Jan., and more on the subject has just been received from Tom Stapleton in Roscrea, Co. Tipperary, who sends new year greetings and goes on:
Delighted to announce our winter gig for Leap Castle (9.00 p.m. Sat. 25 Jan.) is the Nation Blackwell Bluegrass Band - and what a band! Curtis Blackwell (Bill Monroe's Blue Grass Boys) joins mandolin/fiddle multi-award winner Chuck Nation and Gary 'Biscuit' Davis, Dolly Parton's banjo whiz and co-producer. They are all driven along by Susan Nation on double bass.
Close harmony vocals and superb instrumentals are their trademark. Nation & Blackwell is an award-winning bluegrass music band consisting of renowned performers who deliver toe-tapping music that engages and entertains an audience from the moment they take the stage until the rousing applause at the end!
