The Berea College Bluegrass Ensemble from eastern Kentucky, with special guest Alice McLain White, are about to begin a tour in Ireland.

Berea College has been a focal point in Appalachian culture since 1855. The College's Bluegrass Ensemble owes much to the work of the remarkable McLain Family (Raymond W. McLain was at the EBMA's EWOB Festival a few years ago in Bill Clifton's 'Pick of the Crop' band).
