Tours by Martin Gilmore Trio and the Petersens in May 2015

Thanks to John Nyhan for the news that the Martin Gilmore Trio from Denver, Colorado, will be touring Ireland from 1 May to 12 May 2015, with a repertoire of bluegrass, country, and some folk. The Trio consists of Nick Amodeo (mandolin, guitar, vocals), Ian Haegle (bass, vocals), and of course Martin Gilmore (right) on guitar, banjo, and vocals.

Back in Colorado, Martin is the guitarist and lead singer with the bluegrass band Long Road Home, which features the iconic banjo player Pete Wernick ('Dr Banjo'). As well as being a fine songwriter, he is the son of Steve Gilmore, guitarist with High Plains Tradition, and came over with the band on their tour a year ago, playing support on several of their dates as well as a lively solo schedule.

John also reports that The Petersens family bluegrass band from Branson, Missouri (see the BIB for 5 Feb.), will be touring from 18 to 30 May. John, who is organising both tours, will send full tour schedules soon.
