Promoting bluegrass in Europe

The logo of Bluegrass Europe appears on today's Bluegrass Blog, and right beside it are some stimulating quotes from Rainer Zellner and Hansjoerg Malonek, major figures in the presentation of bluegrass in Germany (both of them also took part in the IBMA's International Summit of 2008).

Terri Holloway of Arizona has reported to the Bluegrass Blog on the seminar 'Promoting bluegrass: that's how we do it in Europe' presented by Zellner and Malonek this morning (9.30-11.00 a.m., 28 Sept. 2010) as part of IBMA's World of Bluegrass 2010. Congratulations to the original Bluegrass Blog and its correspondent on such a prompt and ample report on this event; and congratulations too to the seminar presenters for some thought-provoking comments on the state of bluegrass in Europe, which are worth anyone's attention. Holloway's whole report can be read here.
