Netherlands bluegrass news

Rienk Janssen reports:

Henri and Linda te Kaat present a series of bluegrass and country concerts in the Victoriaklef Openlucht-theater on the site of the war museum in Overloon. It is a beautiful open-air setting, perfect for this kind of music. The remaining two shows will be on Saturdays: 31 July and 21 August 21.

A series of very nice pictures taken by Alle Hamstra at the recent Big Bear Festival in Zuidlaren can be found here.

On 20-22 August, Paul van Vlodrop, Peter Broekhuijsen, Bruno van Hoek, and Elly Beurskens will have the third edition of the bluegrass weekend 'Ins Blaue Hinein' in the German Eifel mountains. These four musicians will do hands-on workshops, individual lessons, plus a lot of jamming. All bluegrass instruments are covered, as well as the singing part.
