Larry Roddy


The bluegrass scene in Ireland has lost a good friend. After a period of illness, Larry Roddy died on 4/5 November 2010. He had been for many years one of the leading promoters and tour organisers for bluegrass, old-time, folk, and other acoustic music in Ireland. The photo above shows him (left) in June 2010 with Niall Toner and Rex Foster (USA) at Ballymore Eustace, Co. Kildare, where Rex was playing a show arranged by Larry.
