Bluegrass jam at Heidelberg, 11 Feb. 2010

Patrick Russell of the Just Grass bluegrass band sends out this invitation:

Hello bluegrass music lovers,

Heidelberg Bluegrass Stammtisch hosts Chris Weller and Patrick Russell warmly welcome you to join us to our monthly bluegrass jam at the local Rod & Gun Club, 11 Feb. - starting about 7.00 p.m. We welcome all area bluegrass musicians from Frankfurt to Stuttgart, and from both sides of the Rhein River, to join us for the only bluegrass jam of its kind in Germany.

The best thing for you - it's free! That's right, musicians from four or five local bands join together to enjoy a jam together. The restaurant will serve food and beverages as you like, including an American-style hamburger.

Other upcoming bluegrass events:

11 Apr. 26122 Oldenburg - The Gibson Brothers, from upstate New York. I have seen this band perform and the show is first-class. They have five or six CDs to their credit, with Bona fide a wonderful work. The Staatstheater is a super venue for music.

14-15 May 77815 Buhl International Bluegrass Festival. A beautiful town near Baden-Baden and six bluegrass bands - three USA and three European bands - offering two days of bluegrass music enjoyment. A must-see.

If you require more information, please let me know. Hope to see you Thursday night at the R&G. Grass on!
