Thanks to EBMA member André Luis de Figueiredo Lentilhas from Ferragudo, Portugal, who reports that banjo legend Tony Trischka (USA) (left) will be among the artists taking part in the Hootenanny Festival at Culturgest, Rua Arco do Cego, 1000-300 Lisboa (Lisbon), Portugal.

The Hootenanny Festival, which runs from 2 February to 7 February 2009, also features Mike Seeger (USA), the single most important figure in the old-time music revival, and Ira Bernstein & Riley Baugus (USA), two of the best old-time musicians now playing.

Tony Trischka's Double Banjo Bluegrass Spectacular concert will be on 7 February. For more details and sound tracks, see the festival web page.
