Now showing on UKBluegrass.com

You can now see on the UKBluegrass.com website two videos that may interest bluegrass enthusiasts in Europe outside the borders of the UK.

One is a thirteen-minute feature filmed at last month's Sore Fingers weekend in England. The Sore Fingers events, especially the week-long programme in spring, regularly attract pickers from across Europe. Anyone who has attended will find the video very evocative.

The other, half as long, is a 'Minnesota Originals' feature on innovative banjo-maker Tom Nechville, who frequently visits festivals and other bluegrass events in Europe. It shows Tom demonstrating the Heli-Mount system and other aspects of his revolutionary rethinking of banjo structure.

The Sore Fingers feature can be seen here on UKBluegrass.com, and the Nechville feature here. Both can be seen on the UKBluegrass YouTube channel.
