Midnight Run (USA) in Ireland - UPDATE

Three months ago, on 8 April, the BIB reported that Midnight Run (also on Facebook) from east Tennessee would be headliners for this year's 10th Moniaive Michaelmas Bluegrass Festival in Scotland (28-30 Sept. 2018), and that they were looking for a few support dates, spending the week before Moniaive touring in Ireland, if possible.

Update 18 July: Thanks to Richard Thompson for drawing our attention to dates that appear on Midnight Run's online tour schedule for shows in Ireland. However, the tour organiser has informed us that no details should appear on the BIB without his approval. The dates shown earlier have accordingly been deleted.

Midnight Run have much in common with the Po' Ramblin' Boys, also from east Tennessee (strongly recommended by Jan Michielsen of 4 Wheel Drive, who is hard to please), whom we hope to see in Ireland next year. Their press kit says:

Midnight Run is a high-energy, high-lonesome, Tennessee-based bluegrass band, set out to keep tradition alive by creating a band that’s steeped in the rich roots of bluegrass music, all while including influences from outside the genre. Originating in the Gateway of the Great Smoky Mountains, Midnight Run began its journey in February of 2015, as a house band for Ole Smoky Moonshine Distillery in Gatlinburg, Tennessee. Now, with over 200 shows a year, they find themselves playing to audiences from all over the world.

Two videos from Midnight Run's live performances at the Distillery are on their press kit web page, and more are on YouTube. For more information, contact Midnight Run through their website.
