John Sheldon, secretary of the Scottish Bluegrass Association and convener of the Booking Network group set up at the recent European Bluegrass Summit, reports:
Dear European bluegrass promoters,
I have established an online Notice Board of forthcoming European tours, as a follow-up from the European Summit. The ad hoc group working within EBMA to advance Continent-wide booking issues consists of John Sheldon (convener), Christopher Howard-Williams, Chris Keenan, Dagfinn Pedersen, and Rienk Janssen.
Please feel free to publicise the existence of this Notice Board and send me details and notices for inclusion on this board. I will paste your notices online for you and keep this updated according to the information you supply me.
This is a simple means to publicise to other promoters and interested parties the tours you are planning within Europe. The Notice Board will allow other interested promoters to network with you and follow up any requests you make or information you place on the board. I will include any information you send me on this notice board relating to forthcoming European tours.
Contact John Sheldon by e-mail.
Bands now listed on the Notice Board (with links to band websites where available) include White Mountain Bluegrass, Randy Waller & the Country Gentlemen, the Midnight Ramblers, Wayne Taylor & Appaloosa, the Chapmans, Remington Ryde, the Smith-O'Reilly Bluegrass Band, and Craig Duncan & Friends.
