The first Royal Roots session: Navan, 1 May 2014 (update)
We can now welcome a new organisation in Co. Meath, Royal Roots, catering for musicians who want to play bluegrass, old-time country, and other Americana roots music.
The BIB thanks Eugene Donegan for the news that Royal Roots will be launching the very first in a series of weekly music sessions on Thursday 1 May in Beggy's bar, Bridge St., Navan. The sessions will be a mixture of bluegrass, old-time country, American folk, Cajun, and gospel. All musicians are welcome, and the session kicks off at 9.30 p.m. Royal Roots have produced an attractive poster, which can be seen on the Royal Roots Facebook page and also on Ray O'Brien's Bluegrass in Ireland page.
Taken together with the Ashbourne concert series set up by Sean McManus and friends at the start of this year, we're delighted to see bluegrass flourishing in Royal Meath.
