Reports on La Roche Bluegrass Festival 2009

The fourth La Roche Bluegrass Festival is being studied by Ruth Ellen Gruber on her Sauerkraut Cowboys blog. Two instalments have so far appeared (10 August and 15 August), and the series is to be continued.

A personal report on the festival has also appeared on the Bluegrass Ireland Blog.

On Sunday 2 August M. Thabuis, mayor of La Roche-sur-Foron (right, in suit), welcomed festival guests to a reception at the town hall, at which the New Essex Bluegrass Band (UK) played; they had just come from singing gospel songs in the church of St-Jean-Baptiste (photo: Carol Hawkins)
