Frederic Arsonneau

The following sad news has been received from Christopher Howard-Williams, president of the France Bluegrass Musique Association:

'Frederic Arsonneau, the president of the AEGC Bluegrass Association in Paris, died last night. He had a brain tumour that was discovered in November. French bluegrass is in mourning.'
