Bluegrass writer in rural Wales

MaryE Yeomans, bluegrass writer and photographer, is on an extended stay in rural Wales and keeping a blog of her experiences, which can be read here. Her writings on bluegrass include 'Tears fell on Rosine', an account of the funeral of Bill Monroe, which originally appeared in Bluegrass Unlimited magazine and has been republished in Tom Ewing (ed.), The Bill Monroe reader (Illinois University Press, 2000).

MaryE supports Sore Fingers, the UK's first-class bluegrass/old-time instruction workshops, and her photos taken at past Sore Fingers Weeks can be seen here and on the Sore Fingers website.
