'Spring is the mischief in me'

That's the title that Vincent Cross, Ireland's bluegrass representative in New York, gives to his April e-newsletter, and he opens with some references to great literature on the subject of spring. To celebrate the season, he includes a free download of the song 'Walking on the outside' from his 2013 album A town called normal.

Vincent (who earlier this year bought a 1955 Martin O-18 guitar) also includes an interesting link to the blog Tools of the trade: songwriters and their guitars, where the latest feature is on Bob Wright of Staten Island, whom many here may remember for his visits to early Dunmore East festivals.

Dates are also given for Vincent's tour in California later this month. The image of him (top right) is by photographer Rachel Eliza Griffiths.
