The Lovell Sisters in Basel, 10 Sept.

Thanks again to Lilly Pavlak for a report and photos of a show in the current tour of Europe by the Lovell Sisters. Other dates in the tour were shown on the European Bluegrass Blog on 8 August. Lilly writes:

On their three-weeks-long European trip, after visiting Norway, Germany, Holland, and Belgium, they played last Wednesday (10 Sept.) the only Swiss concert, in Basel. The concert was the best-visited event there till now, as the first in the row of fall concerts series organised by Angelika Torrie.

The band showed us an innovative mixture of bluegrass, country, contemporary bluegrass and newgrass, and a lot of their own materials. The girls, Jessica (fiddle), Megan (dobro), and Rebecca (mandolin, banjo, and guitar), enchanted everybody with their sweet harmonies. Everybody was very impressed with the band's great vocal and instrumental work. It was one of the best concerts of this season.

The band travel with the girls' parents and their five-year-old little brother and they went from here to go back to Germany, Denmark, Sweden, and finally back to Norway. We wish them a safe trip! And hope to see them in Europe again soon.
