Rumour has reached my ears that the Whitetop Mountaineers, part of the Whitetop Mountain Band are touring the UK in the Autumn. Unfortunately, there's nothing about it on their website.

Does anyone have any information?

Many anticipatory thanks.

Here a couple to start with:

The Whitetop Mountaineers - Martha Spencer and Jackson Cunningham

Friday, Sept 16 Willesden Folk Union, The Masons Arms 665 Harrow Road London NW10 5NU

Moniaive Bluegrass Festival on 23 - 25th www.moniaive.org.uk

email mailout@foaotmad.org.uk and ask to be added to their weekly emails of oldtime stuff in the UK and I guess more details will crop up there as the time approaches.

The link I used was www.sweetsunnysouth.co.uk , which the mudcat link maker then proceeded to ruin by adding a www.mudcat.org in front of it. This happens frequently.

grumble whinge complain.....

I'm sure they'll put the schedule up soon. We've had them at our concert series in Richmond, Virginia and not only are they fabulous musicians - they're unquestionably "the real thing". They come from Grayson County, Virginia, and Martha's family has been musical royalty in that area for generations. She's related to a reknown fiddle maker, Albert Hash, and her dad also makes instruments. Jackson, her partner, has learned the craft from Martha's dad. They are as warm and genuine as you can get - you'll love them and their music! Be sure and make it a point to see them. Oh and Martha is sure to demonstrate some old time Appalachian clogging.

Shucks. From the dates posted above, it looks as if the tour is going to be confined to the south of England.

Rats. Shucks. What about us folk up north. Well, I am off to see Sara grey, Kieran Means and Ben Paley, and then Jeff Warner tomorrow. So I'd better not complain too loudly.

Don't forget they're Americans, so long distance travel probably wouldn't be much of a problem to them.

As I feared, it's all down south and nothing up north. Does anyone now where the Chapel, Wales, referred to above, is.

Sept. 15- Islington Folk Club London - venue details as per The Horseshoe (which is it's 'home'.

Square and Compass is - I assume - at Worth Matravers, near Swanage

Melting Pot... could be several... possibly Southampton... or Redruth.

Is that St Ives, Cornwall or Cambridge?

Kentfolk appears to ge a general website not necessarily a venue.

Any more ideas folks?

Martha and Jackson have been to Oz a few times, last time was January right here in my home town, as well as other places. They are great to see, very entertaining, and really nice young folk.

Cheers

Nickp. I guess you're right. But anyone who can get down that way should clock what else is coming up there.

Friday 14th October 2011 - Beverly Smith and Alice Gerrard - Alice Gerrard is a legendary performer, having appeared with many of the great names in bluegrass music. She is joined by guitarist and fiddle player Beverly Smith. £7.50

Thursday 27th October 2011 - Catfish Keith - Deep delta blues and American roots music from one of the top acoustic bluesmen in America. £7.50

Thursday 17th November 2011 - Appalachian Roots - Old time music and dance variety show featuring fiddle, banjo, flatfooting, buckdancing and a dose of mountain preaching from Riley Baugus and Ira Bernstein. £10.00.

Guess I'll just have to move to South Wales

Fred, from your comments I have a suspicion you are generally in a Liverpool direction, so these dates may be of interest (if not too far away):

Beverly & Alice - October 23, Bothy Folk Club, Southport
Debby McClatchy - Oct 2, Ring O Bells Folk Club, Warrington

And Ira and Riley will be at the Gainsborough Old Time Festival next February (subject to contract).

If you like the Whitetop Mountaineers, you may also like Jeni and Billy . Jeni was raised in a coal mining community in Appalachia, and her songs reflect this. They're doing a summer tour of the UK too.

Thanks Maryrrf,

I took a listen but find that their style is completely different to that of the White Top Mountaineers. Musical ok but far less interesting, they come across more like 1960's folkies. Fine if you like that approach but it ain't for me.
