Whiskey Puppy in the Netherlands & Belgium, 21-9 March


Whiskey Puppy: Justin Auld (Redwood Highway), banjo, fiddle; Rachel Gold (The Flat Mountain Girls), guitar; Travis 'Tater' Harrison (Cocks in the Henhouse, Jackass Willie), bass. Justin and Rachel are the first-Saturday hosts of KBOO's (90.7 FM Portland) 'Music from the Truevine' show.

Whiskey Puppy plays boot-stomping, mule-slapping traditional bluegrass and old-time music. The Portland, OR, trio brings energy, humour, and skilful musicianship to little-known songs and tunes from the repertoires of the early Southern string bands. Known for sweet three-part harmonies and their collection of chew toys, Whiskey Puppy has been performing since 2001, including their 2005 'Kiss the Puppy' cross-country tour. They have appeared at bars and festivals all over the West Coast, and in 2004 won the 'Not quite bluegrass' band contest at the Columbia Gorge Bluegrass Festival. Their tour dates in Europe are:
