Rackhouse Pilfer at Carter Vintage Guitars

Congratulations on a high-achieving year to Sligo's Rackhouse Pilfer, who announced on Friday (26 Sept.) that they are taking two weeks' rest after a busy season of festivals and gigs. However, their engines will barely cool off before shows resume on 3 October, with sixteen performances scheduled for that month alone. Their August included return visits to two of the biggest bluegrass events in Europe: the La Roche Bluegrass Festival on the edge of the French Alps, and the Appalachian and Bluegrass Music Festival at Omagh, Co. Tyrone.

While they were in Nashville recording their album Love and havoc, released earlier this year, several performance videos of them were shot and can be seen on the YouTube channel of Carter Vintage Guitars - along with many fine videos of first-class instruments being given workouts by such pickers as Mike Compton, Charlie Cushman, Adam Steffey, and David Grisman. Carter Vintage Guitars, 'Nashville's friendliest guitar store', was featured in the latest issue (no. 32) of the Fretboard Journal.
