Thanks to the indefatigable John Nyhan for a reminder that on this coming Sunday (10 Nov.) Jeff Scroggins & the Scroggdogs (above) will begin their second 2019 tour of Ireland. They will be playing at Tuohy's Bar, Rathdowney, Co. Laois, at 9.00 p.m. Jeff has announced on Facebook that this tour will be

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!!

This powerful and dynamic band guarantee a great show to all who come out to support any of the eight dates on this tour. Bluegrass fans in Ireland are fortunate to have musicians of this calibre playing over here, but we can hardly expect this to continue if they are playing to half-empty theatres. John adds:

I would especially like to thank the audience who have supported live bluegrass music over the years. Their support is very much appreciated.
