Ireland's Niall Toner Band have issued their mission statement and plan for 2008, which includes the release of their third CD, We believe in clean endings (Avalon Records AVCD 006). The album is a further contribution by the NTB of new original material in the fields of bluegrass and acoustic country music.
Print publications by the NTB in 2008 will include Nuts and bolts, a workshop manual for songwriters; the Niall Toner Band songbook, with lyrics to over 100 original compositions; and the NTB gig list, with contact data for over 200 festivals, promoters, and venues, for the use of other bands and solo artists.
The band will also continue to bring its music to the widest possible audiences through appearances outside the bluegrass and folk circuits. The full text of the release can be read here.
