Old Crow Medicine Show in Dublin and Belfast, 20-21 Oct. 2014
Thanks again to Des Butler for the news that Old Crow Medicine Show (USA) will be performing at Vicar Street, Dublin, on Monday 20 October, admission €29.00. Last year the band's record 'Wagon wheel' went platinum, they won a Grammy award, and they became members of the Grand Ole Opry.
In late October this year, they will be in Europe on a tour that includes shows in Manchester, Glasgow, London, and Amsterdam as well as at Vicar Street and (on the following night, Tuesday 21 October) at the Mandela Hall, Belfast, where the online advance price will be £22.50. More information, together with online booking facilities, can be found through the band's tour schedule. Parker Millsap will also perform on all shows in the tour.
The Watery Hill Boys gig [see the BIB for 27 July] went very well. They gave a first-class performance to a full house. I would venture that a lot attending would not have been familiar with this music genre; but they warmed to it, and this was reflected in the very warm and extended applause given after each number.
