The Wilders in Europe, May 2007

The Wilders will be appearing in Germany, Switzerland, Belgium, and the Netherlands during the EWOB period this year, thanks to Rainer Zellner's Music Contact agency. This is their first trip to central Europe, and the shows includes the Buhl, Willisau, and Zuidlaren festivals. Details of the tour (3 May-28 May 2007) were published a month ago on the Music Contact website. Since then, two further dates have been added - the band is provisionally booked for the Karl May festival at Radebeul on 19 and 20 May (TBC).

Music Contact says 'Bluegrass meets Rock 'n' Roll'; we suggest 'Old-Time meets Honky-Tonk'. Under any label, the Wilders are a high-energy band with a growing reputation, who scored a great success at the Appalachian and Bluegrass Festival at Omagh, Northern Ireland, in September 2006.
