Competition answers

Last Monday the BIB drew attention to the new programme for events at the Séamus Ennis Arts Centre, Naul, Co. Dublin (a good friend to bluegrass and related music in the Dublin region), which can be read here.

By the courtesy of the Centre, the BIB was able to offer two seats for each of this weekend's shows at Naul in response to correct answers to two questions. NO answers were received; but here are the answers that were expected. For the Jeff Scroggins & Colorado (USA) show on Friday, the question was:

Name three other bluegrass bands from Colorado who have played in Ireland before 2015.

Answer: Hot Rize, the Bluegrass Patriots, High Plains Tradition.

And for the Gordie Tentrees with Jaxon Haldane (CAN) show last night:

One of the most influential bluegrass albums featured two songs by a Canadian songwriter. Name the writer.

The writer was Gordon Lightfoot, whose 'Ten degrees and getting colder' and 'You are what I am' were recorded by J.D. Crowe & the New South on Rounder 0044. The album also includes Ian Tyson's 'Summer wages', so an answer pointing out that it featured three songs by Canadian writers would have been valid.

The Centre also draws attention to the return of Woody Pines (USA) on Sat. 12 Mar. in what is expected to be a sell-out gig. Other shows likely to interest BIB readers are in the planning stage.
