Songwriter's third tour of Ireland

Gary Ferguson (guitar, vocals) will make his third consecutive tour of Ireland in July 2007, together with David Miner (dobro, vocals) who accompanied him in 2006. The tour will begin at the Athy Bluegrass Festival on 13 and 14 July in Athy, Co. Kildare, and end at the Phil Murphy Weekend in Carrig-on-Bannow, Co. Wexford, on 27, 28, and 29 July. It will include concerts and workshops on Dobro playing and songwriting. Promoters looking for performance or workshop dates can reach Gary here or here.

Gary hopes to have two new CDs available for the tour; he has just recorded for a Bill Emerson project, The Sweet Dixie Band, with Tony Rice, Jimmy Gaudreau, Mark Newton, Paul Williams, Pete Goble, Dudley Connell, Tony Trischka, etc. The second project is Live at Podunk, recorded at the Podunk Bluegrass Music Festival in East Hartford, CT, with Mike Auldridge, Ron Stewart, Emory Lester, and Gail Wade.
