I Draw Slow - new video and US tour dates

Thanks to Pinecastle Records for the latest news of Dublin's I Draw Slow (above). Tomorrow they open an autumn tour in the US with a performance in Raleigh, NC, on the first day of this year's IBMA World of Bluegrass. Their full schedule in the US is given as:

30 Sept. The Architect Bar and Social House, Raleigh, NC, 11.00 p.m.
2 Oct. Albino Skunk Festival, Greer, SC, 7.10 p.m.
3 Oct. Wide Open Bluegrass Festival, Raleigh, NC, 5.15 p.m.
4 Oct. The Old Theater, Oriental, NC, 7.00 p.m.
5 Oct. The Rooster's Wife, Aberdeen, NC, 6.00 p.m.

The Pinecastle release says:

I Draw Slow is hot on the heels of their latest release, White Wave Chapel, released in July in the US. They are winning the hearts of fans and growing their audience each time they come stateside.

The latest video from the album is 'Souvenirs'. Conceived after a visit to Dublin's Natural History Museum, 'Souvenirs' is a reflection about the inanimate objects people tend to collect during the course of a relationship. 'They're the things that mark points that you would like to remember', says Louise Holden. 'But now the relationship is over and they are left with this stuff, these little souvenirs.'

The opportunity arose to film the video inside the Natural History Museum with Irish Film and Television Award-winning director Ronan Fox. The Museum provides a tranquil backdrop for the stripped-down brother-and-sister duet.
