Hamilton County Ramblers: updated tour schedule, 8-23 July 2016

Thanks to Jim Pankey, banjo player for the Hamilton County Ramblers from Chattanooga, TN, for these confirmed dates of the tour the band will be making in Ireland in July.

The highlights of the tour will include their appearances on three succesive weekends at the Woodbine Bluegrass Jamboree, at the Ardara Bluegrass Festival, and as instructors at the first Bluegrass Camp Ireland. Note for old-time enthusiasts: Jim is also a fine player of clawhammer banjo, as shown by the video of 'New railroad' (aka 'Hang me, O hang me', 'Been all round this world') on his website.
