Bulgarian country music (and Lucky Luke) -- new video by Lilly of the West

By Ruth Ellen Gruber

Lilly Drumeva, who, with her band "Lilly of the West"  has carved out a niche as Bulgaria's leading (if not only) country/bluegrass singer has posted a new western swing video recorded live in a Sofia studio in May.

Lilly founded her band back in 1996.... here's a video from a couple years back promo-ing the first 15 years of the band.

A couple of months ago, Lilly performed at the opening of an exhibit on the cartoon cowboy Lucky Luke at the Karikatur Museum in Krems, Austria. Lucky Luke is an immensely popular comic book series created in the 1940s by the Belgian cartoonist Maurice De Bevere, better known as Morris.

Lilly appears for a few seconds in this Austrian TV video from the opening -- which looks at Lucky Luke but also shows the various reenactors and western fans who attended the opening.

The exhibition will run until November 17. It will include original drawings as well as material about the Imaginary Wild West (and -- maybe -- the historic one) and there are various events connected to it.

Enter the world of Lucky Luke on his web site.
