Demolition String Band in Ireland, 19-30 Oct. 2016

Thanks again to Uri Kohen in Westport for this news:

Westport Folk and Bluegrass Festival has been booking tours for international acts for the last number of years. At the forefront of this side project of the festival is American duo Demolition String Band, who will return to Ireland this October for the fourth time.

During these tours, the band played many venues and made some appearances in some of the country's main bluegrass festivals. This tour will be no different, when the band will return to some of their favourite venues, such as Matt Molloy's (Westport), Charlies (Cork), and Levis (Ballydehob), as well as new ones such as the Crowe's Nest (Cong) and headline shows in the Bunratty Bluegrass Festival and Balla Bluegrass Festival.

For the best part of the tour, Boo & Elena will play as a duo, and at the festival shows they will be joined by Westport-based double-bass player John Scahill.
