The Ulster American Folk Park Facebook announced last Tuesday this coming event:

Brendan Taaffe [right] comes to us all the way from Brattleboro, Vermont, with his distinctive blend of bluegrass, gospel, Appalachian and shape-note songs.

Friday 4 March 7.30 p.m. Solo concert £5 (FREE for Saturday workshop participants).
Sat. 5 March 10.30 a.m.-4.30 p.m. Singing workshop £20
To book your place e-mail Valerie Whitworth.

BIB editor's note: I took part in a Brendan Taaffe workshop a few years ago; it was well worth attending. Brendan is also a multi-instrumentalist and member of groups who have recorded much good material. The following additional dates in March appear on his website - better check it in advance for more details on the Dunlavin workshop.

Sat. 12th: Singing workshop, Wisdom Centre, 25 Cork St., Dublin, 10.00 a.m.–4.00 p.m., €65 for the day. Contact Mary by e-mail to register.
Sun. 13th: Singing workshop, Dunlavin, Co. Wicklow, 10.00 a.m.
