Paolo Ercoli of Bononia Grass (Italy) reports that the band has had great success on OurStage in 2008. In the latest OurStage bluegrass charts, Bononia Grass have the Top Tracks, and rank among the Most Played, Most Fan Favourite, and Top Fan Clubs.
In November they won first place (among 454 entries) for Video Live Performances with their song 'Moundsville Pen', which put them on the charts for Top Videos and Most Played.
In the December charts they were again on Top Videos and Most Played; won the #3 spot with their video of 'Clinch Mountain Backstep'; and won the #1 spot in the Bluegrass category - among 71 entries from all over the world - with 'In the gravel yard'.
Paolo also took part in the dobro workshop at EWOB 2008 (see photo above) and presented a dobro workshop at the 20th North Wales Bluegrass Festival, where Bononia Grass were performing along with their friends Special Consensus (USA).
The Special Consensus will begin another tour of Ireland and Britain next week.
