Farewell, Strictly Country Magazine

In 2011, the bluegrass world will lose a historic publication as we say farewell to the Dutch bluegrass music magazine Strictly Country. Rienk Janssen, having published SC magazine for the past 40 years, is hanging-up his editorial hat.

The final SC edition will be issue #240 in February.

A farewell festival, jam sessions and more is in the planning stages as SC magazine "goes out in style". It will take place on May 6 & 7, 2011 at the Muzeval in Emmen, NL. Performers are invited to sign-up for a stage time slot in advance. The organizers are offering to pay minimal travel expenses. Vendors of music related materials are welcomed for a minimal fee.

More details will be announced as the event develops. Follow the progress at in the coming months. Mark the dates in your calendar and help the magazine retire on a happy bluegrass note!
