Eric Brace & Thomm Jutz (USA) in Ireland, 6-14 Mar. 2020 (UPDATE)

Thanks to Brendan O'Regan in Arklow, Co. Wicklow, for news of the next event in his Arklow Roots Music concert series, featuring the Nashville-based duo of Eric Brace and Thomm Jutz (above). Brendan writes:

Brace has opened for Willie Nelson and Dolly Parton, Jutz has played in Nanci Griffith's band and toured with Maura O'Connell. They will be in the Upper Room at John Joe's, 6 Upper Main St., Arklow, on Friday 6 March at 8.00 p.m. It will be an acoustic and intimate 'Living Room' style gig, so places are very limited. Tickets for sale at venue from Mon. 17 Feb.; contact details for booking: 087-6404067.

Since moving to the USA, Thomm Jutz (originally from Bühl, south-west Germany) has earned high regard as a songwriter and record producer. Eric Brace is also the founder of Red Beet Records. Brendan's Arklow event is the start of the duo's second tour in Ireland (they were here in 2017), and on the Red Beet website you can see full details of the schedule, together with their approving comments on the venues.
