Youth in bluegrass

The Bluegrass Blog has just posted an item on youth in bluegrass. It includes a link to a story on UKBluegrass.com about the English band Miles Apart, all of whose members are 18 years old and met at the Sore Fingers Week instruction camp.

Miles Apart consists of John Breese (banjo), Michael Giverin (mandolin/ vocals), Kieran Mooney (double bass), and the twin sisters Charlotte (mandolin/ guitar/ vocals) and Laura Carrivick (fiddle/ dobro/ vocals), who took part in the Tenth EWOB Festival at Voorthuizen in May.

The EBMA's youth officer, Liz Meesters, is interested in any bluegrass activity involving young people in Europe. Contact Liz by e-mail.
