Whisky Deaf in Ireland, 25 Aug.-14 Sept. 2015

Thanks to John Kael (above right) for a correction to the BIB post of 21 May, and more information on the tour here in late summer by the duo Whiskey Deaf - himself and fiddler Annie Staninec (above left), from the vigorous scene in Portland, OR, playing traditional bluegrass, old-time, and early country music.

First: the correct link for videos of Annie Staninec is this one to her website, with nine videos of her playing classic bluegrass, cajun, gypsy swing, original instrumentals, and old-time songs with different ensembles, revealing her as a constantly inventive, propulsive, and exciting player in all genres.

It's therefore great news that while Whiskey Deaf are in Ireland (25 Aug.-14 Sept.) they hope to teach some fiddle workshops as well as performing at the 21st Guinness International Bluegrass Festival (27-30 Aug. 2015) at Dunmore East, Co. Waterford, and other events and venues. This will be an unmissable opportunity for aspiring bluegrass fiddlers in Ireland. The BIB will be posting news of their appearances in due course. For bookings and more information, John can be contacted by e-mail.
