Band news

A few titbits from a scan through the band links in the BIB's right-hand column:

JigJam from Tullamore, Co. Offaly, were still in Florida a week ago; in early May they'll be recording a new album, and in the second half of May they will be on another US tour.

Old Hannah from Sligo will also be in the US in May, performing at CualaNYC‬, New York City's Irish Cultural Festival.

Cup O' Joe from Co. Armagh have four festival dates lined up in the early summer, two of which take them overseas: the Coastline Bluegrass Music Event in north Wales (3-5 June), and the Low Country Bluegrass Festival in Belgium two weeks later (17-19 June).

Nearer home, Pilgrim St will be playing their annual summer gig in the Solstice Arts Centre of their hometown, Navan, Co. Meath, on Sunday 5 June (see poster image); Erdini of Co. Donegal began at Easter a series of Sunday evening sessions at the Chasing Bull, Bundoran, to which musicians are welcome; and Dublin's New Breadwinners have posted on Facebook and BandCamp their recording of 'Mama tried' as a tribute to the late great Merle Haggard.
