Picnic Festival 2008

Thanks to Laurent Eeckhout, Picnic Festival organiser, for a report and photos of the 4th Picnic Festival, held at Terra Nova in the Citadel, Namur, Belgium, on 6 and 7 September 2008. Laurent writes:

It was a great success for the bluegrass day (and also for Celtic day), as you can see on the picture. We had five bluegrass bands : G-Runs 'n' Roses (CZ), Sons Of Navarone (B), Clo & Milo (B), Sacred Sounds Of Grass (D), and the Lovell Sisters (USA).

The weather was cloudly on the Saturday but no rain and even stars in the sky on the evening (and on stage too...). The Lovell Sisters were wonderful and the audience really loved their show.

The Irish Pub was also very nice, with jam sessions until late at night - musicians from the bands (two of the Sisters, G'Runs...) and from the audience too.

Planning for the Fifth Picnic Festival (5-6 September 2009) is in progress. For information, contact
