Fine times in Rathmines!

Thanks to Patrick Simpson of the Bluestack Mountain Boys / Dublin Bluegrass Collective for this news and photos from a specially good time last night at the weekly Dublin bluegrass jam session in Mother Reilly's, 32 Rathmines Road Upper, Dublin 6:

Craig High of the Boxcar Preachers, Texas, USA, turned up tonight with his fabulous washboard outfit. I encouraged him to hit the cymbal, but his washboard pickin' was immaculate! It was a pleasure to have him with us. The Bluestack Mountains came up in discussion and it was a great reunion with Luke, Lily, Simon and John, TJ and Craig playing live Bluegrass music in the Beer Garden. Lovely people, great Sunday nights 7.00-11.00 p.m. in Mother Reilly's. Cheers. Lovely to see such crowd affections. Bananas!

BIB editor's note: The Boxcar Preachers played at the Dunmore East Bluegrass Festivals of 2007 and 2014, when an enduring connection with the Dublin scene was born.
