High Plains Tradition (USA) - less than a week away

High Plains Tradition: (l-r) Bobby Vickery, Doug Elrich,
Mark Leslie, Steve Gilmore, Kenny Pabst

The BIB editor writes:

Thanks to John Nyhan, Ireland will be welcoming back the very satisfying classic bluegrass band, High Plains Tradition from Colorado, less than a week from today - the band play the first date in their 2019 tour next Wednesday (27 March) in Clonmel. They toured Ireland in their own right first in 2010, some of their members having previously performed here with the late great Bluegrass Patriots of Fort Collins, Colorado. High Plains Tradition's solid, dynamic, and entertaining presence made a hit with audiences right from the start, and subsequent visits have consolidated that. It'll be great to see them back.

High Plains Tradition (also on Facebook) consist of Doug Elrich (mandolin, vocals), Steve Gilmore (guitar, vocals), Mark Leslie (banjo, vocals), Bobby Vickery (fiddle, vocals), and Kenny Pabst (bass, vocals). The band combines five individual personalities so well that one might be reluctant to single anyone out; but it wouldn't be unfair to the rest of HPT to say that Bobby Vickery's intense vocals get a specially enthusiastic response from audiences. Here again are the tour details:
