Pe & Pe: last few days of this trip

Thanks to Alec and Pauline Somerville in Co. Donegal for more news of the Czech fiddle-and-banjo duo Pe & Pe (Petra and Petr), who have been in Ireland since earlier this month, travelling and playing in the north-west. Since last year, they have recorded a new CD, The valley of happiness. As well as playing a large part in jamming and other informal sessions at this year's Ardara Bluegrass Festival, they performed on the main concert in Nesbitt's Hotel on 26 July.

Alec sends this YouTube link to a video of Pe & Pe playing 'Arkansas traveller' in his kitchen last Sunday. The final week of their present trip to Ireland began on Monday in Moville, where they will be till tomorrow (31 July). The rest of their schedule is:

1 Aug.: Donegal town
2 Aug.: Dublin
3 Aug.: departure
