************Buddy Mondlock, together with bassist Mike Lindauer, begins on Sun. 7 Sept. a tour of these islands, with a special expedition to Ireland managed by John Smith Music Tours. Buddy writes on his website:
... Mike Lindauer (my trusty bassist and singing partner) and I have been traveling to Ireland for nearly twenty years now. I’ve completely fallen in love with the beauty of the place - the nature, the music and especially the people! And every time I announce the tour I always get a bunch of e-mails back saying things like 'Need a roadie?' or 'Wow, I’ve always wanted to go. Got any room left in your suitcase?' I’m happy to say that this coming autumn you can come with me!
The full Buddy Mondlock/Mike Lindauer schedule in Ireland is as follows. More details, including venue website links and location maps, are on Buddy's online calendar.
