Busy Autumn for IRSB

Well, IRS is back in full swing after a summer filled with guest singers and musicians (we thank them all for their help and willingness to play!!). Our trusty bassist is back from her temporary hiatus and she's here to stay. So what does that mean for you?? Why, many exciting opportunities to come out (or tune in) and listen as we once again dazzle you with jaw-dropping fiddle licks, lung-punching banjo picking, face-slapping guitar runs, and soul-vibrating bass slapping.

We'll announce each show, but there are some very special events that we wanted to draw your attention to in advance!

Next weekend, September 20-21 we'll be at Bristol Rhythm and Roots!! Friday night at 5:45 in Cumberland Square Park. Saturday at 4:15p at O'Mainnins Pub. There may even be some special guest stars!!!

Wednesday, Sept 25, we'll be playing at the Market Square Jam. You will NOT want to miss this opportunity to come out and play with us and mingle with other stupendous artists in the Blacksburg area.

Sunday, Sept 29 at 2p, TUNE IN to WVTF (http://wvtf.org/programs/back-blue-ridge-wvtf) to hear us on Kinney Rorrer's show!! We are SO excited to be playing on Public Radio, you won't want to miss this listening opportunity.

October 5, we're at Our Daily Bread in Blacksburg in the morning, so come on out and have your breakfast (or brunch) with us. That evening we're playing the square dance/barn dance so come thrill us with your dancing skills (http://www.daretobesquare.org/).

Then, October 23-26 we have gigs every night: 23rd at 7p at Gillies in Blacksburg 24th at 6p at Heartwood in Abingdon 25th at 6:30p at Squires on the VT campus 26th at 9a at Market Square for the Farmers Market in Blacksburg

Phew!!! SO, plenty of opportunities to listen to your favorite Old Time band – whether it's sitting at home on a Sunday afternoon listening to NPR or coming out on a Saturday night to dance the night away.

Faithfully, IRS
