Anyone who saw and/ or heard Jeff Scroggins & the Scroggdogs during their tour in Ireland in April and May this year - or who even just read what was on the BIB about them at that time - will be glad to know that they will be back in ten days' time for what Jeff describes as:

eight straight nights of West Coast bluegrass in the tradition of Vern and Ray, Rose Maddox, the Louvin Brothers, etc. OK Ireland, this is going to be stronger than turpentine, so come out and check out the most HARD CORE, in-your-face bluegrass band I've ever assembled and brought to Europe, or anywhere!!

The band is coming as part of a European tour, beginning next week at the annual Al Ras Bluegrass & Old Time Festival in Barcelona, and continuing after 17 Nov. in Germany. Many thanks to the irreplaceable John Nyhan for organising their tour in Ireland, which will follow this schedule:
