Barry, Holly and the E5 Band play Kilworth on Monday night next (24th).

Barry and Holly Tashian from Nashville, Tennessee have toured worldwide and made numerous appearances on The Grand Ole Opry, A Prairie Home Companion and many other international radio and television programmes. Their songs have been recorded by Kenny Rogers, Solomon Burke and others.

Playing Bluegrass, Country and Swing, Barry and Holly (guitar, upright bass and vocals) and the E-5 Band will be apearing in The Village Arts Centre, Kilworth, on Monday, October 24.

With great harmonies and fine picking, this will be Barry and Holly’s third visit to Kilworth, having previously appeared as a duo. This time we will have the added bonus of the E-5 Band featuring Al and Emily Cantrell (fiddle/vocals and guitar/vocals respectively) and Al Goll on dobro.
