Leroy Troy And His Hillbilly Trio (Mickey Finns, Redcross)

Making a welcome return to Ireland, this is a trio with an utter lack of self-consciousness (and some might say any sense of decorum), a trio that know the music, wear the costumes, tell the corny jokes, and do the slapstick gags that throw an audience into hysterics.

The 11-gig nationwide tour kicks off in our home county of Wicklow on September 5th before embarking on a loop through some familiar, hillbillyfriendly venues – we’re especially looking forward to Leroy’s September 7th return to Longford Town, setting, of course, for the much-missed Johnny Keenan Banjo Festival (Leroy was on the bill of the last festival to be staged in Longford in 2011).

Bolstered by bevy of new material recorded just for the tour (listen up for the track “The Best Cooks I’ve Ever Seen”), this is a trio who are looking forward to both reconnecting with their friends from past visits and to making friends anew.
