Bluegrass earthquake at Celtic Connections 2009


Dan Tyminski

Thanks to the Scottish Bluegrass Association for news of the Celtic Connections 2009 Festival, to be held in Glasgow, Scotland, from 15 January to 1 February 2009.

The schedule includes the following bluegrass and old-time music talent: Cherryholmes, Dan Tyminski, the Jerry Douglas Band, Bela Fleck, Tim O'Brien, Crooked Still, Bruce Molsky, Abigail Washburn & the Sparrow Quartet, Russ Barenberg, the Hot Seats, Leon Hunt & Guests, the Wilders, Dirk Powell & Riley Baugus.

As the SBA says, this makes Scotland 'the epicentre of a European bluegrass earthquake'. More details are on the Celtic Connections website.
