For the repertoire of bands in the North

Flatt Lonesome, the young six-piece band based in Murfreesboro, TN, won the IBMA Emerging Artist award in 2014, and are featured in a Peterson Tuners ad in this month's Bluegrass Unlimited magazine. They have also recently worked up an instrumental version of the main theme for the TV series 'Game of Thrones', which can be seen on YouTube or in this feature on Bluegrass Today.

Several of the locations in which 'Game of Thrones' is shot are in Northern Ireland, where public bodies including the NI Tourist Board regard it as valuable publicity; funding to the series from Northern Ireland Screen has (by official accounts) been repaid sevenfold in gains to the NI economy. So it would seem appropriate if music from the series were to enter the repertoire of local bands? Check out (and enjoy) what Flatt Lonesome have done, and form your own conclusions.
