Jeff Scroggins & Colorado in Belfast, 3 Feb. 2016

Greg, Jeff, Tristan, Sebie, and Ellie at the
Oklahoma International Bluegrass Festival

Thanks to Richard Leeman of Belfast Bluegrass for news of the forthcoming concert by Jeff Scroggins & Colorado (USA) in Belfast, in the penultimate show of their present tour. The concert is a Belfast Bluegrass production, and Richard has issued an attractive press release, based on the bio page of the band's website.

[Update: Thanks to DanGem Bluegrass, the full text of the release, with original illustration, can be seen here.]

Note: Tristan Scroggins (mandolin and vocals) turned 21 earlier this month (see the BIB for 7 Jan.); and since this year's SPBGMA convention will begin on 4 Feb. in Nashville, it's worth remarking that lead singer Greg Blake from West Virginia has won the SPBGMA Guitarist of the Year award five times and been nominated twice for the SPBGMA Traditional Male Vocalist award.

The band began their tour of Ireland on 23 January at the Shannonside Winter Music Festival, Co. Clare, and will play a date at the​ Sunflower Pub, 65 Union St., Belfast, ​on Wednesday 3 February. Doors are at 8.00 p.m., show starts 8.30 p.m. Tickets are £10 and are available now online and on the door, subject to availability. Richard adds:

This promises to be a fantastic night of music that will appeal not just to fans of bluegrass, but all lovers of country, Americana, and folk music. Don’t miss your chance to see the best in American bluegrass in one of Belfast’s best live music venues!

For further info, please contact Richard on 07779 721 643 or by e-mail.  BIB readers will already be aware that this band is highly recommended. By all means buy their new CD (not yet released in the USA); but you'll be missing a lot if you don't see them in action.
