Knotty Pine String Band plan tour of USA, Sept. 2011

The Knotty Pine String Band (left) from Omagh, Co. Tyrone, Northern Ireland, originally formed when the Appalachian & Bluegrass Music Festivals began to be held at the Ulster American Folk Park at Omagh. In 1998 they were one of the bands that took part in the first EWOB Festival at Lichtenvoorde in the Netherlands.

Since then, they have brought out several CDs and have toured widely, including the USA. They are planning another US tour for 2011, and would be glad to hear from anyone with contacts to venues on the West Coast. Please contact their fiddler, Declan O'Kane, by e-mail. To keep up with the band, visit their Facebook page.
