The Devil Makes Three (USA) in Bangor, 19 Mar. 2015

Thanks to the Open House Festival team in Belfast for the news that The Devil Makes Three, a neo-old-time Americana trio from Vermont, will be playing on Thursday 19 March at the Members' Bar, Ballyholme Yacht Club, Seacliffe Road, Bangor, Co. Down BT20 5HQ. Doors open at 8.00 p.m. Tickets are £16.50 + £1 booking fee if booked online in advance price, or £20 on the door.

Ballyholme Yacht Club is described as a 'hidden gem'; a venue for Open House concerts last summer, it has panoramic views across Ballyholme Bay and Belfast Lough to the Irish Sea beyond. The 19 March concert is the band's only show in Northern Ireland, and at present their online schedule does not list any other dates in Ireland.

The Devil Makes Three (Pete Bernhard, guitar; Lucia Turino, bass; Cooper McBean, guitar) combine blues, 'fierce finger-picking guitar', bluegrass, old-time country, and other influences, using both 5-string and tenor banjo. In 2013 their sixth album, I'm a stranger here, was released. They can be seen in performance on YouTube. Tickets and more information are available from the Open House website and the Open House e-newsletter.
