Roger Ryan's 'Country Cuts', Apr. 2020 - plus release of 'Watauga miner'

Thanks to Roger Ryan of the Country Music Association of Ireland for the April 2020 issue of his 'Country Cuts' e-newsletter, which as might be expected deals mainly with the effects of the coronavirus crisis on country music events and artists - including some inspiring aspects. Roger's news can be read in full here.
Roger also forwards news from US banjo player Mike Scott, who has just released an original instrumental single and video, 'Watauga miner', as a tribute to his grandfather 'Anthon' Scott, miner and banjo-player from the mountains of east Tennessee. The video (which you can see on YouTube) was shot in Tennessee by Irish videographer Stephen Rosney of Rosney Media (also leader of the Back Axles bluegrass-&-Irish band), and shows artifacts that belonged to Anthon. More details are on this Bell Buckle Records press release.
