Vincent vanquishes the Winter Blues

Back on 12 Jan. 2015 the BIB published the welcome news that Vincent Cross, the Irish bluegrass scene's ambassador in New York City, will be back in Ireland on tour this coming summer. He now sends his latest e-newsletter with more details.

The tour will extend over Europe from the end of June to mid August, with eight dates confirmed so far in Britain (including three festivals) up to 18 July and more in the Netherlands, Norway, and Germany from 30 July. Vincent will be in Ireland between those dates, and is already down to play in De Barra's, Clonakilty, on 22 July. He can be contacted for bookings by e-mail.

Last year was Vincent's first year at the big Folk Alliance International in Kansas City, Missouri, and he'll be going again this year (16-22 Feb. 2015) to make nine appearances, shown on the poster image above (photo of Vincent by Robert Kalman). On 15 March he will be playing solo in NYC at the Scratcher Sessions, a regular showcase for singer-songwriter acts. His back catalogue can be heard on Soundcloud.

In Vincent's 'Tools of the trade' blog on songwriters and how their guitars influence their work, Brendan O'Shea of Killarney is featured this month. Find all this and more in Vincent's e-newsletter.
