Deadline for US trip to EWOB 2007

Kevin Lynch, of the Connecticut Bluegrass Music Association, the IBMA, and U-H Radio Bluegrass (now in its 37th year), reports for the benefit of our readers in North America:

Just one last note to those interested in making the trip to the IBMA-award-winning 10th Annual European World of Bluegrass three-day event in the Netherlands:

1) The trip is 14-20 May 2007 and will include additional excursions built
around the EWOB events.

2) The absolute DEADLINE for reservations/deposits is Monday, 26 February 2007.

I am going as an unofficial guide and assisting my travel agent sister, who has booked this tour as a bluegrass fan, at cost. She has arranged this not-for-profit tour partly as promotion for future trips through her travel agency, but also because of her love of the music.

This bluegrass group trip to the Netherlands has two main goals:

1) To promote international bluegrass, primarily through the EWOB events in this case.

2) To offer bluegrass fans in North America a chance to take this trip at a much lower expense than one could ever arrange on their own.
