Europe in Bluegrass Now

In the March issue of Bluegrass Now magazine:

* the 'Band to Watch' column by Dave Higgs features Cages Bend of the Nashville area, with emphasis on the band's Cornish-born banjo-player and master mandolin-maker Sim Daley;

* the 'Aircheck' column by Larry Robinson features EBMA member Jaap C. de Gues, who has presented his 'Let there be Country' show every Wednesday over Origineel FM (105.5, 106.2) from Spijkenisse, the Netherlands, for the last seven years;

* the EWOB 2007 CD gets a very positive review; and

* there's a snippet (with photo) on how well Chris Stuart & Backcountry were received at the Dolder 2 club in Feuerthaler, Switzerland, on their recent tour.
