26th Annual 'Celebration in Blue', Jablonec (CZ), 14 Nov. 2009

Thanks to Lilly Pavlak for photos and a report on a long-established Czech festival, 'Posviceni v Modrem' (Celebration in Blue), which she had never had a chance to visit till a month ago, when the 26th Posviceni v Modrem was held at Jablonec in the Czech republic. Seven fine bands competed for the traditional prize of a roast goose, and the results were:

#1 Sunnyside

#2 Blackjack

#3 Kreni

The other bands taking part were Handl, Bluegate, G-Runs 'n' Roses, and Funny Grass - and as the three winning bands had to leave early for other gigs, the roast goose was shared between these four remaining bands. Read Lilly's full report here. Thanks to Lilly for the corrected caption to the photo below.
