Pilgrim St at the Electric Picnic, 29 Aug. 2014

Thanks to Eugene Donegan for the latest news of Pilgrim St (above) from Navan, Co. Meath, who made their debut as a band just three weeks ago (see the BIB for 5 July), and are clearly already going places. Their new website is up and running; and at 5.00 p.m. this coming Friday (29 August) the band will be playing the Salty Dog stage at the 2015 Electric Picnic at Stradbally, Co. Laois. Eugene adds:

If there is any bluegrass or old-time country fans, we would love to see them.

The band lineup is Peadar Farrelly (guitar, vocals), Richie Farrelly (guitar, vocals), Eugene Donegan (banjo, vocals), Cathal McQuaid (fiddle), Eoin McDonnell (mandolin), Mack Lynch (dobro), and Francis McGinn (bass), and their repertoire includes songs from Bill Monroe, Woody Guthrie, Leadbelly, Doc Watson, Earl Scruggs & Lester Flatt, and Hank Williams.
