Hamilton County Ramblers (USA): Irish tour 9-23 July 2016

The Hamilton County Ramblers from Chattanooga, TN, have already been mentioned on the BIB as the guests of honour at this July's Woodbine Bluegrass Jamboree. We guessed, however, that the Ramblers would most likely be playing other dates in Ireland; and on their online tour schedule, the following dates appear. NB: the Ramblers say 'More Dates TBA', so note that more chances to see and hear this fine band may be coming on 12, 14, 17, and 21 July.

Fri. 8th: Ashbourne, Co. Meath, venue TBA
Sat. 9th: Woodbine Bluegrass Jamboree, GAA Centre, Athy, Co. Kildare
Sun. 10th: Tigh an Cheoil, Ring, Co. Waterford
Mon. 11th: Village Arts Centre, Kilworth, Co. Cork
Wed. 13th: Schoolyard Theatre, Charleville, Co. Cork
Fri. 15th-Sat. 16th: Ardara Bluegrass Festival, Ardara, Co. Donegal
Mon. 18th: Sixmilebridge Folk Club, Sixmilebridge, Co. Clare
Tues. 19th: Clonmel Folk Club, Clonmel, Co. Tipperary
Wed. 20th: Sunflower Bar, 65 Union St., Belfast BT1 2JG
Fri. 22nd: Bluegrass Camp Ireland, Headfort School, Kells, Co. Meath
Sat. 23rd: Phil Murphy Weekend, Carrig-on-Bannow, Co. Wexford

Please note the entry for the Bluegrass Camp Ireland. This has the hallmarks of being an important new event on the Irish bluegrass calendar; and the BIB hopes to give full details, with website address, by the end of this week.
