BBMA e-newsletter #9

Thanks to Richard F Thompson, editor of British Bluegrass News, the magazine of the British Bluegrass Music Association, for the news that BBN has issued the ninth (April 2010) in its series of e-newsletters to BBMA members, carrying news that breaks between issues of the quarterly magazine.

The 13-page newsletter, which can be read here, has a further improved format and includes many items of bluegrass news outside Britain, leading with a feature on the 13th EWOB Festival (13-15 May 2010). The lineup for the Willisau festival in Switzerland and the new Lilly Drumeva CD are reported, and a new one-day bluegrass event in England, the Appleby Bluegrass Day, is announced for 30 August 2010.

Those interested in joining the BBMA can do so by contacting the Membership Team, Clare and David Rozzell, 26 Martin Road, Portsmouth, Hampshire, PO3 6JZ; e-mail.
