The Price Sisters in Ireland (update)

The BIB reported two days ago on the two free concerts that will be given at The Braid Arts Centre, Ballymena, Co. Antrim, tomorrow and Thursday, by Raymond McLain with students of his from the Kentucky Center for Traditional Music in Morehead, KY, and the Price Sisters - whose motto on their website is 'Traditional Bluegrass music inspired by Bill Monroe'.

The Price Sisters, unfortunately, don't seem to be scheduled for any other formal dates in Ireland, but as their Facebook reveals, they haven't been idle since flying into Dublin. The photo below shows them at the Crosskeys Inn (est. 1654) in Co. Antrim.

A video shows them playing 'Road to Columbus' with Brendan Hendry and Jonathan Toman, among others; and the latest post (at the time of this writing) on their Facebook speaks of a master class at the Braid tonight.

Update 25 July: In the August edition of Bluegrass Unlimited magazine, the Price Sisters' album A heart never knows receives a Highlight Review from David J. McCarty. The review is not yet on BU's website, but look out for it.

Further update: The review can now be read online here.
