The Horsenecks (USA/GB) in Ireland, 6-15 Dec. 2019 [UPDATE]

Three days ago the BIB reported the programme of shows between now and Christmas at the Red Room, Cookstown, Co. Tyrone, ending (15 Dec.) with an evening with the Horsenecks. We can now report that this will be the last date of a short tour in Ireland [but see below].

The core duo (above) consists of Barry Southern from Liverpool and Gabrielle Macrae from Portland, OR. As anyone who saw them at last year's Westport festival can testify, they can expand into a powerful four- or five-piece string band; but in any configuration they play - as their website says - 'hard-hitting and heartfelt old-time and classic bluegrass music'.

Update 26 Oct.: For full details of the tour, which will begin on 6 Dec., see the BIB for 26 Oct., which supersedes the information originally given here. Vera van Heeringen (below), who will be playing bass in the band, will also be opening some of the shows with a set of her own material.
