The Trio's farewell (for now anyway)

From Colin Henry:

The Trio of Gary Ferguson, Janet Holmes, and Colin Henry, who have toured Ireland successfully for the last few years, are performing their last two concerts in two weeks' time. On Saturday 7 July at 8.00 p.m. they will be at the Flowerfield Arts Centre in Portstewart, Co. Londonderry, and on Sunday 8 July they shall finish what they started with a concert at the Red Room, Cookstown, Co. Tyrone.

This will be the last opportunity for a while to see this lineup, so try and make one of the gigs if you can.

And the BIB editor's comment:

Bittersweet news; it's not often that members of the scene in this island - even if they're performers and composers of the calibre of Janet and Colin - get the opportunity to form a durable, working, successful, and friendly association with a highly regarded US singer/songwriter and recording artist. Gary has been touring annually in Ireland since 2005 and with Colin and Janet since 2008, usually for two weeks at a time; so it's a blow that the trio is playing only two shows this year, with no immediate prospect of more.

However, this also means that these two shows will be historic occasions; and any BIB readers who can get to them will feel amply rewarded.
