Foghorn Stringband (USA) in Ireland, 8-16 May 2015

Thanks to Sharon Loughrin for the news that the Foghorn Stringband - the throbbing nucleus at the heart of the prolific old-time music scene in Portland, OR, and in the very front rank of old-time bands of the present day - will be back in Ireland in May 2015, in the first leg of a tour of these islands.

The band will in fact be ending their all-too-brief Irish tour in the Red Room at Cookstown (run by Sharon and her husband Arnie) before going over to Britain. The dates shown on their online schedule are:

Fri. 8th-Sun. 10th May: Baltimore Fiddle Fair, Baltimore, Co. Cork, 8.00 p.m. (more info TBA)
Wed. 13th: The Linenhall, Castlebar, Co. Mayo, 8.00 p.m.
Fri. 15th: The Glens Centre, Manorhamilton, Co. Leitrim, 8.00 p.m.
Sat. 16th: The Red Room, Cookstown, Co. Tyrone, 8.00 p.m.
