The Railsplitters (USA) in Ireland, 16-21 June 2015

Thanks to the Seamus Ennis Arts Centre in Naul, Co. Dublin, for making us aware that their special summer solstice session on 20 June will include the Railsplitters bluegrass band from Boulder, Colorado, playing classic and contemporary bluegrass and original material.

The band comprises (above, l-r) Christine King (fiddle), Dusty Rider (banjo), Lauren Stovall (guitar, lead vocals), Leslie Ziegler (bass), and Peter Sharpe (mandolin). Formed early in 2012, the Railsplitters won the major contest that year at Pickin' in the Pines (Flagstaff, Arizona), and the contest at Rockygrass (Lyons, Colorado) the following year. More information is on their bio page.

They begin a tour in Britain on 30 May, and their schedule in Ireland reads at present:

Tues. 16th June: The Red Room, Cookstown, Co. Tyrone
Thurs. 18th: Raheen House Hotel, Clonmel, Co. Tipperary (Clonmel World Music series)
Fri. 19th: Balor Arts Centre, Ballybofey, Co. Donegal
Sat. 20th: Seamus Ennis Arts Centre, Naul, Co. Dublin
Sun. 21st: The Green Room, Black Box, 18-22 Hill St., Belfast BT1 2LA
