Mala & Fyrmoon (CH) in Ireland in June

On 10 Dec. 2014 the BIB mentioned the excellent Swiss trio Mala & Fyrmoon (right) as being keen to play at a festival in Ireland. Thanks to Stefan Behler (who contributes vocals, guitar, dobro, mandolin, and upright bass to the group) for the news that they will be playing a string of shows here in mid June. The dates confirmed so far are:

Fri. 12th June: Westport Folk and Bluegrass Festival, Westport, Co. Mayo
Sat. 13th: Monroe's Live, Galway city
Wed. 17th: Barry's Pub, Grange, Co. Sligo
Fri. 19th: Tech Amergin Arts Centre, Waterville, Co. Kerry
Sat. 20th: The Cobblestone, 77 North King St., Dublin

... and other dates are being negotiated. As Stefan mentioned in December, the trio present all-original material, in between acoustic Americana and bluegrass, with great vocals by female singer/fiddler Mala, backed by bass, guitar (and other instruments), and harmony vocals. Last year they released their first album and did a short US tour, playing in Boston, New York (with Vincent Cross; see the BIB for 6 June), and at the Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival.

As well as their website, the band are on Facebook and SoundCloud. The following links are to videos of their CD title track, the making of the CD, and live shows on tour, in Sweden, at the Little Restaurant, and at Grey Fox.
