Bluegrass gospel band suspends operations

Ireland's only bluegrass gospel band, the Low Country Boys of the Ards Peninsula, Co. Down, Northern Ireland, are booked for concerts up to 29 December 2007. After that, Mark Thompson (mandolin/vocals) and Graeme Thompson (guitar/vocals) have decided to take a break from playing concerts for at least twelve months to spend more time with their families.

Gibson Young (banjo) and Ivan McFerran (bass) will continue playing concerts, and can be contacted through the band's website, which is worth a visit.
