June 19 2009 (pre blog, thus the date)
So, I’ve been back long enough now from Holland to gather my thoughts and more importantly, get some pictures from The European World of Bluegrass 2009. Jan de Mooy and Lilly Pavlak were kind enough to send me some of the photographs they took. EWOB was a lot of fun, met a lot of nice people, saw some beautiful instuments, listened to a ton of music, played a little less and generally had a good time. I even took a clog dancing class with Julie Black, who also performed a number with me during the concert (there’s a picture below). She performed with me again a few days later at Het Oude Raadhuis in Hoofddorp, organized by Pieter Groenveld from Strictly Country Records. Thanks are due to the good people that organized all this, it’s quite a production and obviously a labor of love.
