Bluegrass -- EWOB coming up

I've received in the (physical) mail the special magazine put out with details of the upcoming European World of Bluegrass, to be held in Voorthuizen, NL May 21-23.

Except for the advertising of bands, instrument makers, festivals and other whatnot found in the magazine pages (as well as some of the other bits and pieces of detail) most of the information -- and more -- is up online at the EWOB web site.

It's a huge program and the central point of European observance of May as worldwide bluegrass month. Dozens of bands are on the lineup.

Visit EWOB logoEurope's premier bluegrass event, the European World of Bluegrass Festival in the Netherlands. The EWOB Festival is an unforgettable experience for musicians and audience alike! For 3 fun-filled days, you'll see Europe's most exciting bluegrass groups compete for the European Bluegrass Band Awards, performing alongside the finest touring American artists. The #1 European Bluegrass Band wins a chance to perform in Nashville, Tennessee!

We come from many different countries, but we speak one common language: BLUEGRASS! Geographic, political, and cultural borders fall away as we join together to celebrate our love for bluegrass music, and meet new friends from faraway lands. Maybe world peace can start with a banjo intro.

Bring your friends, your family, your guitars, banjos, mandolins, dobros, basses, and fiddles, and join in the fun! See you in May at EWOB 2009!
