Band news

Dublin's I Draw Slow are in the midst of their winter tour of the USA - eight shows in ten days, four being in North Carolina and the others in New York, Washington DC, Tennessee, and West Virginia. Full details are on their online tour schedule. The above photo, posted very recently on their Facebook, shows them about to go on at WNCW. The BIB has no information on the small bear in left foreground.
Tullamore's JigJam (above) are now officially a four-piece band: Jamie McKeogh, Daithí Melia, and Cathal Guinan have been joined by Gavin Strappe from Drangan, Co. Tipperary. Like the original three members, Gavin is a multi-instrumentalist; his role in JigJam will be as mandolin player.

Update 1 Mar.: JigJam's first video with Gavin Strappe on mandolin can be seen on their Facebook; it's a bluegrassed version of the folk song 'The mermaid'. The band are now in Florida.
