Foghorns in Ireland, 6-16 May 2015

The BIB mentioned in January and February that the Foghorn Stringband from Portland, OR, will be back in Ireland for an all-too-brief tour in May. They will have a new CD (right), available on live shows and from CD Baby. Thanks to Sharon Loughrin of the Red Room at Cookstown, Co. Tyrone, for the news that the Foghorns' schedule has been augmented and now reads:

Wed. 6th May: Whelan's, 25 Wexford St., Dublin 2, 8.00 p.m.
Thurs. 7th: Dungarvan, Co. Waterford, venue TBC, 8.00 p.m.
Fri. 8th-Sun. 10th: Baltimore Fiddle Fair, Co. Cork
Tues. 12th: John Benny's, Dingle, Co. Kerry, 9.00 p.m.
Wed. 13th: Linenhall, Castlebar, Co. Mayo, 8.00 p.m.
Fri. 15th: Glens Centre, Manorhamilton, Co. Leitrim, 8.00 p.m.
Sat. 16th: Red Room, Cookstown, Co. Tyrone

Venue location and contact details are on the band's website. Sharon adds:

Our own night with them on 16th is long sold out with a still growing waiting list! Recent radio play of the band has led to us still getting enquiries about the night, so it would be advisable for anyone wanting to hear this first-class band to get tickets booked well in advance, as the other venues may also sell out. We're finding our nights getting fully booked within a few hours of sending out the text to regulars.
