Detached notes

Thanks to Ray O'Brien for forwarding this news from Roger Ryan of the Country Music Association of Ireland: Rattlesnake Annie (USA), longtime ambassador of American roots music to the rest of the world, will be on tour in Ireland in the first half of July, beginning on Thursday 3 July.

Roger announces for event organisers that the following dates are still available: all from Tuesday 8 July to Tuesday 15 July. A YouTube video of Annie in Japan with Masamitsu Oshima can be seen here. Anyone interested in presenting this unique performer should contact Roger by e-mail or mobile 'phone (087-2944821). More details, including a full bio (and Annie's is a remarkable life), are on Ray's 'Bluegrass in Ireland' Facebook page.

The schedule of coming events at the Seamus Ennis Cultural Centre in Naul, Co. Dublin, updated to 13 April, can be seen here. It includes the show on Friday 11 April by the Whileaways (see the BIB for 12 Mar.).
