Gone to Grass at the Crane, Galway, 16 May 2014
Thanks to Pete Lamb (above) for a reminder that his band Gone to Grass will be playing at the Crane Bar, Galway city's premier acoustic venue, on this coming Friday (16 May).
Gone to Grass comprises Pete (guitar, vocals, songwriting), Tom Portman (dobro, vocals), Paul Johnson (double bass), and the formidable Bill Forster (5-string banjo, vocals), who is also a member of the Banjaxed Bluegrass Band. The Gone to Grass website says:
As well as finely crafted original material, the set list includes diverse numbers from the broader pop and rock genres, reinvented and delivered in a bluegrass style alongside regular country-blues, instrumental breakdowns and bluegrass classics, for a lively and uptempo show that's always dynamic, inventive, unpredictable... and fun!
