Thunderbridge Bluegrass Boys: live DVD

The Thunderbridge Bluegrass Boys from Somerset, south-west England, are planning to release a DVD, including film taken over the last few years but centred on a live show to be held at their home base, the Wellington Arts Centre, on Saturday 1 December 2007. Admission is free, but only about 130 tickets are available, and can be ordered from the band by e-mail. The DVD is scheduled for release in spring 2008.

The band have three shows on their schedule between now and the filming: a charity show on Saturday 27 October at Wellington School, in which Thunderbridge appear at 8.00 p.m.; a free-admission show at 9.00 p.m on Thursday 8 November at The Martlet, Langford Budville; and Fry's country club on Saturday 10 November at Keynsham, near Bristol. Other shows follow on 14 and 15 December; full details are on the Thunderbridge website.

Thunderbridge also tip their hats to the UKBluegrass.com website, founded nearly a year ago as a medium for publicising bluegrass in the UK.
