The Grove Band at Bunratty Bluegrass Festival (photo: Des Butler)

Thanks to Paul McEvoy of the Red Hat Acoustic Music Club for more information on the members of the Grove Band (UK), in the configuration that played at the first Bunratty Bluegrass Festival just over a week ago; see Des Butler's report of 15 October.

The photo above shows (l-r) Bill Forster (banjo), Evan Davies (mandolin; member of the Kentucky Cow Tippers, standing in for the Grove Band's absent mandolinist), Peter Earle (bass), Kevin Garrat (guitar, dobro, lead vocals), and Neil Garrat (guitar).

Paul adds that Gab, fiddler with the New Breadwinners, is one of the best young fiddlers he has ever seen. We're glad to hear also that the latest meeting of the Red Hat Acoustic Music Club was a great night, with over thirty people taking part, including Tony O'Brien of Woodbine.
