Bluegrass & Country Social Night at Ashbourne, Co. Meath, 16 Mar. 2014

Thanks to Sean McManus for the news that, following up on the very successful concert night on 16 Jan. (see the BIB here), bluegrass and traditional country music will return to Ashbourne, Co. Meath, on St Patrick's Eve - Sunday 16 March.

The venue is Molly's in Frederick St., and the lineup consists of two-thirds of the January programme: Woodbine from Athy, Co. Kildare, and Della Belle from Dundalk, with P.J. Power as special guest on dobro. More details are on the poster image (click to enlarge).

Seamus also reports that on the night Ashbourne's own Seamus Driver will perform a tribute to Jim Reeves, who died fifty years ago this year.

Thanks to Ray O'Brien for the news that on the same evening (16 Mar.) Niall Toner will be playing at the Stag's Head, Dame Lane, Dublin 2, with Richie Foley (mandolin), Kelvin Busher (bass), and Johnny Gleeson (dobro). The evening's material will include songs and tunes from Niall's latest album on Pinecastle.

Update 3 Mar.: Ray also announces a competition in which two pairs of tickets for the Ashbourne show can be won. Full details are on Ray's 'Bluegrass in Ireland' Facebook.
