A Rocky Mountain Based Bluegrass Band that began it’s musical Journey in 1987. Since then their travels have taken them all across the US and to Canada and Ireland.

It all happened in 1987 when Doug Elrick and Kenny Pabst, after a year off from playing with the band Grain Of Salt, decided it was time to get back to playing the music we loved in front of the best fans in the world, Bluegrass Music Fans. Through several band member changes, this current band can be seen performing throughout the west from California to just about every state to the Mississippi River. They have also performed in Canada and had 2 tours in Ireland as well.

Their music is rooted in the “Traditional Sound” with their own seasoning. Fans have been quoted as saying,” High Plains Tradition is the Most Entertaining Band they have seen in years. You just never know what is going to happen on stage with those Boys.” Doug Elrick is one of the finest songwriters this side of the Mississippi and their shows are full of the songs of the Masters as well as their own material. The Highlight of a Festival with High Plains Tradition is their very moving Gospel Show. They currently have 4 recordings, Prairie Wind, Where the Woods are Cool and Still, Children Go, and Milestones.

Tickets – €15:00 & Booking can be made on +353(0)51 391656
