New website for the Niall Toner Band

The Bluegrass Ireland Blog reports:

The Niall Toner Band has a completely new website, and it's a world-class beauty. For the first image the reader sees (with the caption 'Original bluegrass music from the foothills of the Blackstairs mountains'), 'spectacular' is not an excessive word; and the rest of the site doesn't let it down.

There's some arresting news on the update page - the NTB have three new projects in hand, one of which will be a traditional Irish music album with the legendary harmonica player John Murphy of Colfer's, Carrig-on-Bannow, a good friend to bluegrass music in the south-east. But all of this site is well worth looking at - and listening to.

The 'Press' pages include quotes from reviews of previous NTB albums, taken from many country and bluegrass periodicals, in several European languages. The NTB is also on MySpace.
