JigJam (and other familiar names) on IBMA WOB showcase schedule

The International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) announces its official showcase schedule for this year's World of Bluegrass (25-9 Sept.) in Raleigh, NC. The roster of artists playing the showcases can be seen on this e-newsletter, and it includes several names familiar to audiences in Ireland.

Among the US groups who have been here several times - such as the Special Consensus, Cedar Hill, and Jeff Scroggins & Colorado - are Tullamore's* own JigJam (below). Also taking part are the hot UK band Flats & Sharps from Cornwall, who (we believe) were on the same evening concert with JigJam at a past Westport Folk and Bluegrass Festival.


*Bluegrass Today says they're from Fermoy, Cork, but pay no attention to that. JigJam's own website says plainly that all four members are from Tullamore.
