Strong contingent from Ireland at Eagle Music event, 7 Nov. 2015

The BIB reported on 28 July that JigJam (above: photo by Michael Quinn Photography) will be taking part on Saturday 7 November in the annual Banjo Event at the Eagle Music Shop, Armitage Bridge, Huddersfield, West Yorks., England, along with the phenomenal Kruger Brothers. Thanks to the European Bluegrass Blog for making us aware that the Event will have an even stronger contingent of musicians from the scene in Ireland than we'd thought.

The programme, as shown on the EBB, includes two banjo workshops: Pat Kelleher of Dripsey, Co. Cork, is giving one on the long-neck banjo; and Bill Forster, who plays with the Banjaxed Bluegrass Band and Gone to Grass, is giving an intermediate-to-advanced bluegrass banjo workshop.

Steve Noon's Eagle Music Shop is the world no. 1 dealer for Deering banjos, and Greg and Janet Deering will be at the Event, which is also celebrating forty years of the Deering company. Tickets can be booked online, where full details of the Event can be found.
