Thanks to Paolo Dettwiler for the above photo from a meeting of the three editors of Strictly Country, Bluegrass Buehne, and Bluegrass Europe on 4 August 2009 in Lausen, near Basel, Switzerland. Paolo reports:

The meeting was productive and took place in very good spirits as there will be a future for a bluegrass magazine in Europe. Angelika Torrie will be in charge of leading a task force to outline the possibilities for this magazine, possibly in connection with the European Bluegrass Summit 2010. More details will be announced in the next issue of the magazines.
