Vincent Cross reports from New York

Vincent Cross, the Irish bluegrass scene's ambassador in New York City, sends his November newsletter with a look at some NYC roots music events, including the forthcoming Northeast Regional Folk Alliance (NERFA) convention (13-16 Nov.) in upstate New York - the folk world's regional equivalent of IBMA's World of Bluegrass. Vincent will be showcasing there for the first time on 15 Nov., playing three sets including a tribute to Townes Van Zandt.

The latest artist surveyed in Vincent's 'Tools of the trade' blog on songwriters and their guitars is Cathy Grier, whom he first met as she interviewed other performers about what inspired them to create. Read more on Vincent's newsletter and Facebook.
