Old-time news from the Greasy Coat Stringband

Thanks to Derek Copley of the Greasy Coat Stringband for this news and poster for an upcoming gig in the Back Room of the Cobblestone in Dublin on Thursday 18 February. Derek writes:

The Black Feathers, a duo based in England (though Ray Hughes is from Dublin) will be performing and have asked the Greasy Coat Stringband along for support on the night.

It's a welcome opportunity for the Greasys as we are currently working with a new member and exciting new setlist, as ever deeply rooted in the nuances of traditional old-time fiddle-and-banjo music. We'd love to see some familiar faces - and new ones too - on the night. Doors 9.00 p.m. and tickets €8.

In other old-time news, the Thomas House old-time jam on Monday nights is thriving the past few months, since we decided to convene a little earlier, at 8.00 p.m. All old-time enthusiasts always welcome. There's going to be some drinks promos coming along in early spring too.

That is good news! Look out for some more exciting old-time news in the near future from the Greasy Coats. Meanwhile, the Black Feathers will be playing the following shows in Ireland this month; location data and links to venue websites are on their online tour schedule.
