Kathy Barwick and Pete Siegfried in Ireland, May 2014

We posted last week the news from Bluegrass Today that multi-instrumentalist and singer Kathy Barwick (USA), who toured here in 2013 with Gary Ferguson, has received the Northern California Bluegrass Award for Best Dobro Player.

Thanks to acclaimed bluegrass writer Jon Hartley Fox for this further good news:

Kathy Barwick had such a good time touring Ireland this summer with Gary Ferguson that she's decided to do it again next summer, this time with her regular musical partner of several years, Pete Siegfried, a great singer and mandolin player from here in California. 

Barwick & Siegfried combine elements of bluegrass, folk, and old-time country music 'brother duets' into a compelling and highly entertaining Americana fusion showcasing Pete’s exceptional lead vocals, Kathy’s amazing guitar work, and their sterling duet harmonies.

Thanks to Jon also for links to the new Barwick & Siegfried ReverbNation site, where their music can be heard and seen, and to Kathy’s website. Barwick & Siegfried, the 'Mountain Laurel Duet', will be performing at the following venues in May:

Thurs. 15th: Sunflower Folk Club, Belfast
Mon. 19th: Ballymore Acoustic Gigs, Murphy's, Ballymore Eustace, Co. Kildare
Wed. 21st: Mill Theatre, Dundrum, Dublin
Fri. 23rd: Tech Amergin, Waterville, Co. Kerry

Jon Hartley Fox has been writing on bluegrass and other arts for over thirty years. His latest book, King of the Queen City: the story of King Records, is a major source for the recent Stanley Brothers biography by David. W. Johnson.
