if you trace the prehistory of erin's grove far enough back, you get to ian's discovery of the bothy band in around 1981. they were his first benchmark for great irish traditional music, only saddened by the fact that he never saw them live (they split in 1979). That is….until now. in december, the bothies announced that they were reforming to play their first gigs in 45 years. hence, Ian and sara are gearing up to head to belfast next month to Pay homage :-)  what's more, as part of belfast tradfest, there will also be a concert by master-piper mick o'brien and fiddler Caoimhin O Raghallaigh and workshops with some of ireland's top players. not to mention endless sessions. the anticipation is already growing…
