Tennessee Mafia Jug Band in Ireland, 29 Oct.-12 Nov. 2016

The Tennessee Mafia Jug Band from Goodlettsville, TN, will be touring Ireland for two weeks this autumn, starting just five weeks from now. The band (also on Facebook) features the unique Leroy Troy (on the left in the front row), heir to the banjo acrobatics and other performance skills of the late Uncle Dave Macon via Cordell Kemp, and a firm favourite at the much-missed Johnny Keenan Banjo Festivals.

The schedule, as shown on their website, appears below. Please note the shows shown as beginning at 7.00 p.m., which seems an unusually early starting time. The BIB has changed this to 8.30 p.m. in the case of 5 Nov., on the basis of what we know of the Red Room's general practice; so please check with the venues before going to any of these shows.
