G2 on the move

L-r: Tobias Strömberg, Jimmy Sunnebrandt, Christoffer Olsson, Erik Igelström, Jens Koch

Sweden's G2 Bluegrass Band are packing for their long-awaited trip to the US. After four or five years of hoping, planning, and sheer hard work, they leave Europe on 8 June for an active four-month tour.

After settling in to Nashville, TN, which will be their home base, the band's schedule begins at the Fathers' Day Bluegrass Festival in Grass Valley, CA (17-18 June), from which they fly back across the continent to the world-famous Station Inn in Nashville (19 June). Following dates on the schedule can be seen on their MySpace site.

Their new album Untapped routes will be available at their shows, and an official release date for it in the US is being arranged. The brand new single 'Still standing' can be bought on Klicktrack. G2 are hoping for the votes of all their fans and friends in the IBMA ballot for Emerging Artist of the Year.
