Alecia Nugent (USA): Irish tour, 12-20 July 2019

Thanks to Pat McGill and Eileen Golden for details of the forthcoming tour of Ireland by Alecia Nugent and her band. Alecia has won the SPBGMA Female Vocalist of the Year (Traditional) award several times, brought out three highly regarded albums on Rounder, and been nominated (2009) for IBMA Female Vocalist of the Year. John Lawless on Bluegrass Today wrote about her: 'Pure and powerful, Alecia has a wide range and a lovely voice. She brings passion and sincerity to every song she sings.' A new album is in preparation.

She leads four highly experienced and respected bluegrass musicians: Beth Lawrence (Sister Sadie), harmony vocals, bass; Gena Britt (Petticoat Junction, New Vintage, Lou Reid & Carolina), vocals, banjo; Jed Clark, guitar; and James Kee, mandolin, who was here three years ago with the Hamilton County Ramblers, having played previously with Kati Penn & NewTown and subsequently with Dailey & Vincent.
