Foghorn Stringband: back in Ireland, 17-28 Aug. 2016!

Thanks to Nadine Landry, bass player and singer with the Foghorn Stringband of Portland, OR, for the news that the Foghorns are excited to be coming to Ireland for the second time this summer. The BIB has no doubt at all that their many friends and fans here are just as excited. This is not only the premier band playing old-time music today, but a band that seems capable of playing (as at Westport last month) for a solid weekend, whether they're scheduled to do so or not.

Nadine sends a list of the dates they'll be playing next month, in two forms: a poster (above) that appears on the Foghorns' website, and this schedule:

Wed. 17th: Riverside Cafe, Skibbereen, Co. Cork
Sat. 20th: The Cobblestone, 77 King St. North, Smithfield, Dublin 7
Sun. 21st: Ballyholme Yacht Club, Bangor, Co. Down
Mon. 22nd: The Red Room, Cookstown, Co. Tyrone
Tues. 23rd: Matt Molloy's, Bridge St., Westport, Co. Mayo
Fri. 26th: Five Glens Arts Festival, Manorhamilton, Co. Leitrim
Sun. 28th: 22nd Guinness International Bluegrass Festival, Dunmore East, Co. Waterford

Update 15 Aug.: Here's a new version of the poster.
