Seth Mulder & Midnight Run (USA) in Ireland, 15 Jan.-2 Feb. 2020

Thanks to the indispensable John Nyhan for this news and his comments:

Seth Mulder & Midnight Run from Gatlinburg, Tennessee, USA, are making their second visit to Ireland. On their previous visit they proved extremely popular with their high energy and passion for classic bluegrass and country. Anyone who wants to hear traditional bluegrass and country should not miss this band. They reminded me of the Johnson Mountain Boys. The band features:
  • Seth Mulder (mandolin, vocals) - He sounds like a young Dudley Connell.
  • Colton Powers (banjo, vocals) - A great Scruggs-style player with a fantastic stage presence.
  • Ben Watlington (guitar, vocals) - A fine flatpicker, with a great voice for bluegrass and country.
  • Cody Bauer (fiddle) - He has been described as more like Michael Cleveland than Bobby Hicks. That's some praise.
  • Max Etling (bass, vocals) - A rock-steady bass player who performs with great enthusiasm.
