A legend of bluegrass and country music at Naul, 3 June 2016

The BIB editor writes:

Roni Stoneman, the First Lady of Banjo, is now beginning the second week of her present visit to Ireland, having made memorable appearances as a guest at Dublin's Cabin Sessions last Thursday and as headliner at the Clarinbridge Banjo Gathering in Co. Galway last Saturday.

Her next scheduled appearance will be this coming Friday at the Séamus Ennis Arts Centre, Naul, Co. Dublin. The Centre is an intimate venue with a limited capacity, and advance booking (which you can make via this link) is important.

To adapt what I wrote in 2012, 'this will be a unique opportunity for lovers of bluegrass music over here to hear, and meet, someone who is both a historic musician and entertainer in her own right, and has a family background that sets her only one generation away from the beginnings of recorded country music.' Moreover, the show at Naul will be the last opportunity in Roni's current visit to see and hear her in the Dublin area.

Update 2 June: The opportunity, unfortunately, has now been lost; see the BIB post of 2 June, above.
