Tumbling Bones and Woodbine at Athy, 25 Apr. 2014

Tumbling Bones (above) from Portland, Maine, USA, are now in the third week of their third tour of Ireland, which ends a week from now - after which, they'll continue with shows in Germany and Britain. Their full Irish schedule appears at the head of their website; all dates are also on the BIB calendar.

Among their remaining dates over here, Tumbling Bones will be performing on Friday night (25 Apr.) in the GAA Centre, Dublin Rd, Athy, Co. Kildare. The Centre is the main concert venue for the annual Athy Bluegrass Festival, the oldest annual bluegrass event in Ireland, founded in 1991 and organised since 1998 by Tony O'Brien.

Tumbling Bones will be supported on Friday by Athy's own Woodbine, led by Tony. (This combination worked very well and enjoyably for all parties last year; the impact the Bones made then at Athy also led directly to their being booked for this year's 12th International Bühl Bluegrass Festival in Germany.) The show starts at 9.00 p.m., and admission is €10. Tony adds:

A great night assured & your support much appreciated.
