Vincent Cross, the Irish bluegrass scene's resident envoy in New York, sends his latest e-newsletter, looking forward to his extensive seven-week tour in Europe from early next month. Vincent writes:

This summer I embark on my first European tour in many years, and I'm extremely excited. I see these tours as more a pilgrimage rather than some kind of musical marketing plan... Music has allowed me to meet people I would never have met based around where and when I was born. It also seems to help break down barriers and remove the plaque that forms around the foundations of ourselves. I believe that it is necessary for survival.

I'd like to meet as many people as possible on this run, and hope that my friends will share the details below through e-mail or other social media. Come and connect with me through the Facebook invite, and we'll share a story or two.

All the schedule appears in the e-newsletter, both as a straightforward list and in a poster image. Vincent advises checking his website for changes and details. His dates in Ireland are:
