Bands touring in Europe

The new year opens with a bang for the British Isles (or 'These Islands', as they're known in the Republic of Ireland), with tours by the Special Consensus in Ireland and Britain (10-28 January) and by the neo-old-time all-girl band Uncle Earl in Scotland and England (20-27 January).

The Special C. have toured in Europe many times, but this is their first time with a chairman of the IBMA on banjo. They have recently finished recording a new CD, which should be available on the tour.

Uncle Earl's new CD, Waterloo, Tennessee, is due for release on 13 February in the USA but may also be available during their tour.
