Mala & Fyrmoon duo in Ireland, 22-6 June 2016

Thanks to Mala Gassman and Stefan Behler of Mala & Fyrmoon (CH; also on Facebook) for their latest e-newsletter, which includes a press release with bio details, quotes, and confirmed dates for their return to Ireland later this month.

Mala & Fyrmoon, in trio format, toured Ireland a year ago with their album On the run and took part in the 9th Westport Folk and Bluegrass Festival, among other events; a video memory of their 2015 trip, 'On a green journey', can be seen on YouTube. This year they have just released a new music video, 'Green light of May'.

Mala (vocals, fiddle, mandolin, guitar, songwriting) and Stefan (vocals, guitar, mandolin, dobro, bass) are coming over as a duo this year. They write in their press release:

Writing new songs and taking them to other countries are Mala & FyrMoon's two passions. This time it’s Ireland’s turn! Several shows are coming up with all original songs and instrumentals, brought to you right from the Swiss mountains.

And the shows so far confirmed are:

Wed. 22nd: Ryan’s Bar, Kilkenny city, 9.30 p.m.
Fri. 24th: Tech Amergin Arts Centre, Waterville, Co. Kerry, 8.00 p.m.
Sat. 25th: Sin È, Cork city, 10.00 p.m.
Sun. 26th: House concert, Shanahoe, Co. Laois, 8.00 p.m.

A section of their e-newsletter is entitled 'Composing on bicycles', which to the BIB strongly indicates that they should at least pay a friendly visit to Bob's Bar in Durrow, Co. Laois, a hub for cycle enthusiasts.
