Scroggdogs in Ireland, 28 Apr.-4 May 2019

Following yesterday's BIB post introducing Jeff Scroggins's Scroggdogs (USA; above), we can now - thanks to John Nyhan - reveal that this exciting new band will be playing in Ireland three weeks from now, and that three of their shows will also feature Greg Blake. John writes:

As Jeff Scroggins will be teaching at Sore Fingers, he is going to spend a week after it in Ireland. The rest of the Scroggdogs couldn't resist coming to Ireland - they have heard so much about it from Jeff, Tristan, and Greg. Of course they are all great players and much sought after.

Scott Gates (mandolin, vocals) is in a group called the Get Down Boys. He has also filled in for Tristan Scroggins in Jeff Scroggins & Colorado.
Yousef Tucker (guitar, vocals) was a member of the award-winning band the Bow Ties, who won Rockygrass 2018. He is also a Californian guitar champion for a few years.
Zach Sharp (bass), also a member of the Bow Ties.
Jan Purat (fiddle) was a member of the band Steep Ravine.
