Bühl Festival to expand to two days in 2009

Walter Fuchs introduces Don Rigsby & Midnight Call at the Johannes Platz

Walter Fuchs reports that on 3 May at 19.00 it was officially announced that from next year on, the Bühl International Bluegrass Festival in south-west Germany will expand to two days as a result of the success of this year's festival, which was nearly sold out with two open-air concerts in the morning on two different stages in the middle of the city, in addition to the afternoon and evening shows. Photos from this year's event can be seen on the festival website.

On the plans for next year, Walter adds:

We start Friday night with two bands and on Saturday the usual four bands. In 2009 it will be held on Friday 1 May and Saturday 2 May. As far as our plans go there'll be four U.S. groups, one Austrian, and one German band. Our mayor is mighty proud and happy and so am I.
