News from France

Christopher Howard-Williams, president of the France Bluegrass Musique Association and organiser of the La Roche Bluegrass Festival (above), reports:

Randy Waller & the Country Gentlemen played a successful concert in La Roche-sur-Foron. Our second indoor, paying concert outside of the festival itself (after Peter Rowan in October). It is interesting to see how the traditionally non-bluegrass concert-goers of La Roche have taken to bluegrass music and musicians. It is a rewarding experience taking bluegrass music to new audiences.

Don't forget the Grange Rouge bluegrass and French folk weekend 'Trad en Fête' on 13-14 June.
