Kevin Lynch: alive & well in Holland

As recently announced on the EBB, Kevin Lynch of Connecticut, USA, has taken up residence in the Netherlands, bringing with him an encyclopedic knowledge of bluegrass music and over thirty years' experience in practically every field of bluegrass activity, including as a professional performing and recording artist on mandolin and guitar.

In the USA Kevin was a founding member of Traver Hollow, who recorded an album Live in Holland (SCR-16) for Strictly Country Records. He played at the first EWOB Festival in 1998 with Amy Gallatin & Stillwaters, and has since been mandolin player and harmony singer with TrueGrass. He also hosted a weekly radio show, 'U-H Radio Bluegrass', on WWUH 91.3 FM in West Hartford, CT; produced or co-produced music festivals and concerts; and has been a director of the Connecticut Bluegrass Music Association (CTBMA), and a charter member of the IBMA.

At recent EWOB Festivals at Voorthuizen (NL), Kevin has been a valued part of the sound and stage crew and Mandolin Workshop presenter (again in 2009 as well). His residence in Europe is a welcome addition to the scene here. He can be contacted at +32 172 411676 or by e-mail.
