Downtown Ramblers interviewed at IBMA

The Bluegrass Blog's correspondent Terri Holloway has been talking to Sweden's Downtown Ramblers, #1 European Bluegrass Band 2009, who are currently in Nashville, TN, as part of this year's IBMA World of Bluegrass.

Pär Ojerot, Martin Blomberg, Oskar Reuter, and Kalle Annerhult are without their lead singer Emelie Junsten, who is at home with her new baby. Most of them came to bluegrass from the punk scene - Blomberg is quoted as saying: 'It’s the energy – we’re talking the same language, just changing instruments.'
