Among their other appearances in the US this autumn, the G2 Bluegrass Band from Sweden (above; #1 European Bluegrass Band 2007) will be appearing at the American Legion Hall, 1030 Central Street, Evanston, Illinois, as part of the Chicago-based Bluegrass Legends Concerts series, on Saturday 23 September at 8.00 p.m. (doors open 7.00 p.m.). Other dates in their tour can be seen on the band's MySpace site.

The Toy Hearts (UK) begin their autumn tour of the US tomorrow (Thursday 3 September) at the three-day Tri-state Bluegrass Festival in Kendalville, IN, followed by six appearances in Texas and a further six in Nashville during the IBMA's World of Bluegrass 2009.
