Over Easy Festival ends after seventeen years

Verein Over Easy Productions reports with great regret that the Over Easy Bluegrass Festival, which has been held in Schaffhausen, Switzerland, on the last Sunday in June since 1989, will no longer take place. The Festival's idyllic site was rezoned as building land, and no suitable alternative location could be found.

The Festival originated with the Over Easy Bluegrass Band, and has been run since 1995 by Verein Over Easy Productions, which will continue to organise bluegrass shows. A concert by the US duo Still on the Hill is planned for 17 May, in collaboration with the Haberhaus Kulturklub.

Verein Over Easy Productions, headed by its president Franz Elsener, thanks everyone who has been associated with the Festival and contributed to its long-running success.
