Sheesham & Lotus & 'Son available for bookings in Ireland, 14-20 Sept. 2015

Back on 10 December the BIB posted the news that that 'the new kings of old-time', Sheesham & Lotus & 'Son (CAN), will be coming to these islands this year. Loudon Temple of the UK's Brookfield Knights agency now sends word that immediately after their return to the big Tønder Festival in Denmark at the end of August, they will be coming to Britain for two fully-booked weeks, and adding a week of dates in Ireland in response to demand.

They will therefore be available for bookings in Ireland for the period 14-20 September 2015. For further info and bookings, event organisers and venue owners who are interested should contact Brookfield Knights. Video clips of Sheesham & Lotus & 'Son can be seen on their website. They have received very enthusiastic reviews for their live shows - one of those cited by Loudon is:

After they enthralled a capacity crowd at the legendary Jumpin’ Hot Club event in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, Graham Anderson, a man who has booked all of the biggest established old-time performers - and we mean them all - said: 'If there’s a more vintage/authentic act that’s so damn entertaining, then in twenty-nine years as a music promoter, I ain’t seen them!'
PS: Another visiting band on the Brookfield Knights artist roster is Lindsay Lou & the Flatbellys (USA), who are scheduled to play six dates over here in August 2015. According to this feature on Bluegrass Today, their sound has recently developed towards what John Lawless considers Americana rather than bluegrass. A video by the band can be seen in the BT post.
