ukbluegrass.com

Jer Boon in the UK has launched the ukbluegrass.com site, which aims to provide all the information bluegrass musicians and fans in the UK might need - news about gig and festival dates, local jam sessions, reviews, and jamming/performing tips. The site also features a forum intended to build community and help pickers in the UK stay in touch with one another. ukbluegrass.com aims to act as a web portal to link all the existing online information together and help those who wish to find out more about the British bluegrass scene, as well as helping to publicise shows by any US bluegrass acts that are planning a tour in the UK.

This is an attractive and well designed site with many good features, which will also be useful outside the UK. One of the recent posts is on Sore Fingers Week, the premier bluegrass instruction course in Europe.
