Hello from East of Monroe! We are enjoying some warmer weather here in the mid-Atlantic, and it's got us all excited about spring events. We've been working on some new original music and starting to gather ideas for our second release. We're also looking forward to some exciting upcoming shows!
On Saturday, March 10th, we're performing at the Shady Grove Coffeehouse in Glen Allen, VA. This family-friendly venue has been presenting acoustic concerts since 2001, and we're looking forward to performing at such a cool place that's dedicated to preserving traditionally-based music. We play at 8pm, and tickets are $15 in advance or $20 at the door. Children 12 and under are admitted free of charge; teens 13-18 are admitted at half price. You can purchase advance tickets online here, or reserve tickets by sending e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling (804) 323-4288.
We're also looking forward to returning to the Mainline at Ashland Coffee and Tea in Ashland, VA on Saturday, March 24th! Back in 2011, we played our very first gig there, and it's remained one of our absolute favorite rooms to play. We play at 8pm, and tickets are $10 in advance or $13 at the door. Tickets can be purchased online here.
These are also our last gigs before we embark on our first international tour! We are so incredibly excited to bring our music to Ireland. Here's some information about those dates:
Saturday, 4/7 @ 8pm: Moy River B&B, Sligo
Sun. 4/8 @ 8:30pm: The Red Room, Cookstown
Thurs. 4/12 @ 8pm: Matt Molloy's Pub, Westport
Fri. 4/13 @ 8pm: St. John's Theatre and Arts Centre, Listowel

If you can't make it to a show, don't worry! You can follow along with our adventures on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. We'll be keeping everyone updated as we make our way through Ireland for the first time, and we'd love it if you followed along.
Thanks for supporting our music! We hope to see you soon!
