Have you got a copy of 'Mind the Gap' yet? If the answer is no, then a fantastic time to remedy that is on the horizon. For a fortnight beginning on 25 January, CD Baby will donate $1 to Mercy Relief and the American Red Cross for the benefit of earthquake survivors in Haiti.

Finding yourself at a loss for how to mark St Pat's this year? I've got a suggestion: join the time-honoured tradition of spending it at Ye Olde Bull and Bush.

Sounds fantastic, who'll be playing there that night, then?

Oh, thanks very much for asking!

Playing the best in Irish jigs and reels will be Scarin' the Horses, which shall include John Burleson (one of the region's finest Irish-style guitarists), Mike Hryekewicz (a fantastic fiddle player late of Lost Tribe and down visiting us from Sunny Portland), and Gypsy Youngraven (recognise that name? So do I :D)

Ye Olde Bull and Bush can be found at:

2300 Montgomery Street (about 4 blocks  North of I-30)
Ft. Worth, Texas 76107-4521
817-731-9206

We can be found there beginning round 7.30 and until...well, Until. I hope to see everybody out there. :D


Cheers and beers,
G

Whilst Sprig's on hiatus, various of us will be playing in various places and with various other people.

For instance, I'll be playing with October Country (for the first time ever!) at the Plaza Pub in Arlington on 26 July from 8pm-12am. OH. And lest I forget, it's also October Country's first time ever to the Plaza Pub, so do come out to cheer us all on. :D

A map can be found here:

So, come out and join Casey, Shaddow, and myself for an evening of music, drink, and billiards.

Cheers and beers,
Gypsy
