Tumbling Bones in Ireland NOW

Posted on the very verge of departure for the Athy Bluegrass Festival, with no time to add dates to the BIB calendar, so apologies to the band and anyone else if this post is not what it should be... Pete with the New York City-based roots/folk/bluegrass group Tumbling Bones writes:

Tumbling Bones // Gritty Traditional American Music

web: tumblingbones.com // facebook.com/tumblingbones

The four young men from Virginia and New York who make up Tumbling Bones play a mix of old-time bluegrass and old-fashioned blues that belies their relative youth. But their trad is no museum piece. It is living, breathing music infused with a little of the contemporary rock ‘n’ roll the band members were reared on and reworked into their original arrangements and compositions. The last half decade has taken them from street-performing on European street corners to venues across the continental United States to an acclaimed performance on the premier American radio program for live music: 'A Prairie Home Companion' with Garrison Keillor. The band’s debut EP Risk not your soul (2011) reached the Top Ten on the Roots Music Report's Folk Radio Chart, and their newest record Schemes (2012) was just released this summer. Check out their Ireland tour schedule.
