The Southern Tenant Folk Union (as previously seen on The Late Late) will be touring Ireland in November and will be appearing at Allihies Copper Mine Museum on Wednesday 13th November 2013 @8pm.

Their new album ‘Hello Cold Goodbye Sun’ is their fifth to be released since they formed in 2006 and contains a set of songs that build on some of the soundscape folk from the acclaimed 4th album Pencaitland as well as showcasing the growing songwriting, instrumental and vocal talent from within the band.

Artistically successful their albums have been praised in The Guardian, Independent, Sunday Times, Mojo, Uncut and Irish Times.  Often heard on national radio shows across UK and Eire they have also performed live in session on BBC Radio 2, Radio 4’s Loose Ends, BBC Ulster and RTE One national TV/radio.  Their live show is exciting, engaging and in their hands ‘bluegrass can effortlessly be blended with other genres – folk, roots, americana – to make a potent, timeless sound’.

Doors will open at 7.30.  Tickets are on sale from Allihies Copper Mine Museum @027-73218 or Beara Action Group @027-70880

Tickets selling fast so it’s advisable to book before the night.
