Belfast Bluegrass - second meeting of 2015

Thanks to Richard Leeman of the Down and Out Bluegrass Band for the news that the next monthly Belfast Bluegrass session will take place on Tuesday 3 February 2015, upstairs in the Errigle Inn, 312-20 Ormeau Road, Belfast, starting at 9.00 p.m. A location map is on the Belfast Bluegrass Facebook page. All are welcome. The Down and Outs are front runners for the title of Hardest-Working Bluegrass Band in Ireland (with Special Jamming Distinction), and any session they're in is worth going to. Richard writes:

I'm still certain that there must be some more bluegrass musicians or wannabe bluegrass musicians about Belfast somewhere...

The band recently made a major contribution to this year's Shannonside Winter Music Weekend (15-19 Jan.) in Co. Clare, playing three shows in Sixmilebridge venues and opening for the Special Consensus (USA) at their concert in Bunratty. A fuller account of the Down and Outs' experiences is appearing on Wendy Connolly's Bluegrass in Ireland Facebook page. Richard concludes:

We’d like to thank the Festival Committee for booking us and for all their work throughout the year, with special thanks to Brendan Walsh and John Nyhan.
