The Petersens (USA): tour begins TONIGHT

Thanks to John Nyhan for a reminder that the Petersens from Branson, Missouri, are about to begin their fourth tour of Ireland (and their second this year). John writes:

Just a reminder that the Petersens Irish tour kicks off tonight at Ó Gliasáin's Bar (concert room), Sixmilebridge, Co. Clare, at 8.30 p.m.

They have just returned from a festival in Finland, where they also did a short tour. They have a new all-gospel CD. Homesick for a country, which will be available at all their shows. I have been listening to it and have been enjoying it very much. It has great vocals, with five of the group taking lead - all of them very strong. Of course their superb sibling harmony is a treat to listen to. Instrument-ally it is also excellent. I also think the choice of songs are great.

I highly recommend this CD. With five lead singers, incredible sibling harmony, and fine musicianship on all the bluegrass instruments - fiddle, guitar, dobro, banjo, mandolin, and bass - makes the six-piece Petersens from Branson, Missouri, a must-see band, for bluegrass, country, and gospel fans.
