Help needed with organising a week-long musical tour

I am hoping for some help with organising a week-long musical tour in County Cork and perhaps further afield for an amazing Italian country blues band called Dago Red in the Summer of 2022, if the coronavirus situation allows.

They are winners of the European Blues Challenge, they have shared a stage with the likes of Ian Siegal, Sherman Robertson, Jorma Kaukonen – Hot Tuna Fan Club, Mick Abrahams (Jethro Tull), Doug MacLeod and Peter Hammill, and more importantly they are some of the kindest people I have ever met.

The first link below is the Dago Red Facebook page, and the second link has a back story about how I met the band and had the honour of singing with them in Italy.…/believe-in-yourself

Any help or advice from music lovers, musicians music agents, music venues, theatres, pubs and parish halls etc. would be more than welcome, with many thanks to Seán Radley for agreeing to promote this via his Cork Music Station shows.

PS I have been living near Ballydaly since August 2020 and prior to that I have been a frequent visitor since I was knee high to a short grasshopper.
