Watery Hill Boys launch new album, 11 Oct. 2013

The Watery Hill Boys (also on Facebook) of Drogheda, Co. Louth, Ireland, have brought their blend of old-time music and early bluegrass to festivals throughout Ireland and also to shows in continental Europe, including the La Roche Bluegrass Festival (F) and a string of venues in Catalonia, Spain.

They now announce that nearly three years after their well received debut CD, they are about to release its successor, Somebody's been usin' that thing, at a special launch, with very special guests, in the Droichead Arts Centre, Drogheda, on Friday 11 October. The show will start at 8.30 p.m. and everyone in the audience is promised a free copy of the CD. Seats can be booked online.

The Watery Hill Boys are (as shown in the CD cover image above, l-r) Dónal Black (banjo, mandolin, guitar, vocals), Jim MacArdle (guitar, autoharp, vocals), and Neil Conlon (bass, vocals). The resemblance of the image to a well known photo of Byrd Moore's Hot Shots is believed to be entirely intentional.
