Nääsville Bluegrass & Music Festival

2009.12.07

I’ll be playing at the Nääsville Bluegrass & Music Festival in Sweden next July 10th, Saturday (approximately, check back later for the final date). Get in touch if you’re interested in a lesson or workshop whilst I’m there (or know of any places in the area that would be interested in putting on an old-time concert).

I’ll be performing and doing clawhammer banjo workshops at the Sweet Sunny South Old Time American Music Festival next September (2010 that is. Weekend of the 10th to the 12th) in Hastings, East Sussex, England. Get you banjos sharpened up and come one, come all!

Moseley Folk Festival and La-Roche Bluegrass Festival

September 10 2009 (pre blog, thus the date)

Moseley Folk Festival was grueling to get to (as I was coming from France) and fun to play at. A beautiful place and a lot of good music. I even got to hear Jethero Tull soundcheck – unfortunately I had to leave before they played! Thanks to the guys working it for all the coffee and Indian food. And thanks to Mike Cummins for the photograph below. Below that, some photos from July 30th at the La-Roche-sur-Foron Bluegrass Festival, taken by my lovely wife, Fereale. Also a fun gig – nice audience and bluegrass groups from Hungary, Russia and France (just on the Sunday, others from various disparate places over the following days). Here’s a video from there of ‘Last Chance’.

European World of Bluegrass 2009

2009.11.12

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.
