Thanks to Nigel Martyn and his Old Flattop agency for an updated schedule for the forthcoming tour in Ireland by the Nation & Blackwell Bluegrass Band. Almost all the dates are as shown on the BIB on 20 December, but a few changes have been made so that the schedule is now as follows:

Nigel adds: 'There is a private house concert near Roscrea on 25 January. E-mail me for details if anyone is interested.
'There is also an available date on Tuesday 4 February. E-mail me if anyone is interested in staging a gig or a house concert in the southern counties of the country, bearing in mind they will be in Co. Cork the day before and Co. Clare the day after.'
Nigel also sends a poster image showing both the band and all the dates; we regret that for obscure technical reasons the BIB cannot yet reproduce this, but it will be on Ray O'Brien's Facebook page.
