Underhill Rose (USA) in Ireland, 2-6 Nov. 2016

Thanks to Geraint and Deb Jones of G Promo PR (UK) for the news that the acclaimed North Carolina 'folk-Americana' trio Underhill Rose, 'Asheville’s pre-eminent female trinity', will be touring in these islands early next month, opening with five dates in Ireland before proceeding to Britain for their second tour there this year.

Underhill Rose consists of Molly Rose (guitar, vocals), Eleanor Underhill (banjo, vocals), and Salley Williamson (bass, vocals). They'll be touring with their latest album, The great tomorrow; this has had very positive reviews from Country Music People, the Irish Post, Maverick, and R2, which gave it four stars and called it

simply top-class country music, seasoned beautifully and seamlessly with earworm hooks and bluesy edges, all delivered with instrumental panache and supremely confident singing.

A new single, 'One time a year', will also be released. A portion of the proceeds from its sales will go to Women for Women International. The tour schedule on the band's Facebook shows the following dates over here:

Wed. 2nd Nov.: The Ivy, 33 Main St., Naas, Co. Kildare
Thurs. 3rd: Strule Arts Centre, Townhall Square, Omagh, Co. Tyrone
Fri. 4th: Island Arts Centre, Lisburn, Co. Antrim
Sat. 5th: Bronte Music Club, 1 Church Hill, Rathfriland, Co. Down
Sun. 6th: Colfer's, Carrig-on-Bannow, Co. Wexford

The location map on the Bandsintown.com website erroneously shows Colfer's as in the centre of Wexford town. The BIB also (at first publication of this post) believed the same website when it located the Strule Arts Centre in Drumquin; but we've now corrected that.

Plenty of Underhill Rose's music can be found on YouTube. A video of a live performance of ‘One time a year’ is here, and another live performance, of ‘Not gonna worry’, is here. Audio recordings on SoundCloud include ‘Our time is done’ and ‘Love looks good on you’ from the current album.

Underhill Rose are also on Facebook and Twitter. For further information, interview, session or guest list requests, please contact Geraint or Deb Jones at G Promo PR by 'phone (+44 (0) 1584 873211; mobile + 44 (0) 7855 724798) or e-mail.
