The Colorado invasion continues: Martin Gilmore and Nick Amodeo, 22-30 Jan. 2016

Thanks to John Nyhan for the following complete schedule for bluegrass and country duo Martin Gilmore and Nick Amodeo from Colorado, USA, who will begin a tour of Ireland ten days from now. On three of the shows they will be supporting their fellow Coloradans Jeff Scroggins & Colorado (see the BIB for 29 Dec.). John writes:

Martin Gilmore (guitar, vocals) and Nick Amodeo (mandolin, guitar) previously toured Ireland as part of the Martin Gilmore Trio - you can expect bluegrass and country from this excellent duo. A highlight of their last visit was Nick's playing of the Telecaster guitar and Martin's singing of classic country and swing.

The photo above, from Martin's Facebook, shows the Trio with John (second from right) in Ireland in May 2015. (If all you see is a little blue square with a question mark, click on that or on the Facebook link.)
