The Annapolis Bluegrass Coalition (USA) will be returning to Ireland this September for a ten-day tour. Roger Green, leader of the ABC, has arranged several tours for the band in Ireland, doing all the booking himself, and getting them into many venues where bluegrass has not previously been heard. Dates confirmed at present are:

17 Sept. Crane Bar, Galway, Co. Galway
18-20 Sept. Clifden Community Arts Week, Clifden, Co. Galway
24 Sept. Sirius Arts Centre, Cobh, Co. Cork
25 Sept. Mermaid Arts Centre, Bray, Co. Wicklow
26 Sept. Dunamaise Arts Centre, Portlaoise, Co. Laois

Roger Green, who was a major contributor to the EBMA's 'Thinking of touring in Europe?' brochure of advice for US bands, also runs a weekly radio show, 'Bluegrassorama' at 4.00-5.30 p.m. on Tuesdays (repeated on Saturdays at 10.00-11.30 p.m. by popular demand) on WRYR-LP 97.5 FM, a community radio station in Sherwood, Maryland. The show is available on the internet at the WRYR website.
