Jeff Scroggins & Colorado: a must-see

The BIB editor reports:

On the basis of seeing them at the Shannonside Winter Music Festival, I believe Jeff Scroggins & Colorado are the most exciting bluegrass band I have seen in this country; and that's said with no disrespect to the many fine bands that have played here. Passion, precision, drive, humour, choice of material, and the interaction that blends so much energy from all over the band into a powerful unified whole - nothing of what I like to hear in a bluegrass band is lacking.

Any bluegrass enthusiast who can reach one or more of their shows should do so. This applies equally to musicians - there is no band playing bluegrass in Ireland at present that can't learn something by seeing these guys.
