Betse & Clarke (USA) at the Brontë Music Club TONIGHT

Betse & Clarke will be playing at the Brontë Music Club in Rathfriland, Co. Down. tonight (Wed. 31 Aug.). The Brontë Music Club (photo below) has the proud claim of being Ireland's premier music venue, while the duo blends the exuberant old-time fiddling and singing of Betse Ellis (formerly of The Wilders) with Clarke Wyatt's precise, thoughtful three-finger-style banjo playing. It should be an unbeatable combination.

Betse & Clarke will have their new fifteen-track album, River still rise, with them. The Banjo Cafe review considers it to be

... one of the very finest releases of 2016, and one that should be a part of every music lover’s collection. A stunning collection that forces old-time music to take a fresh look at where it's been and where it's headed.

This coming weekend they will be playing on all three days of the 25th Bluegrass Music Festival at the Ulster American Folk Park, Omagh, Co. Tyrone, and there are more shows on the schedule next week, when the tour ends on Saturday 10 September at the Seamus Ennis Arts Centre, Naul, Co. Dublin. All dates are on the BIB calendar.
