Christmas news from GrevenGrass

The organising team of the GrevenGrass Festival, in north Germany, report:

We wish all friends and supporters of the GrevenGrass Festival, as well as those who are – privately or professionally – related to our Festival, and all others who are in the mailing list of GrevenGrass e.V., the best Season's greetings!

Many of you have already marked the days of the Pentecost weekend [11-12 June 2011] as the GrevenGrass Festival weekend in your new calendars for 2011. For many it is already a tradition, others have heard a lot about it and want to be a part of it next year. All friends of bluegrass music are welcome!

We started the preliminary planning a while ago, and will get into the definite organisation before the end of 2010. But we can already put the first highlights of the GrevenGrass Festival 2011 under your Christmas tree. Matthias Malcher is happy to announce that the line-up is almost complete.

The next GrevenGrass Festival Stage will have a professional presentation. Ronnie Snippe, frontman of Lazy Tater, will act as link man on the stage. Ronnie, with his congeniality and knowledge of bluegrass, adds virtuosity and entertainment spirit to the lineup. At the 3rd GrevenGrass Festival the following acts will hit the stage on the Ems Beach:

Lilly Of the West (BG)
Sacred Sounds Of Grass (DE)
Rocks & Ivy (BE)
Downhill Bluegrass Band (featuring Ivor Ottley) (SE/UK)
Looping Brothers (DE)

Matthias and our scout Rienk Janssen are still in negotioation with some top-class US bands. We will announce our headliner in January 2011. Around the same time we will feature all 2011 GrevenGrass artists on our website and provide you with extensive information.

The Pentecost weekend will be rather late next year, so quite a long time will pass till we meet again, or finally have the chance to meet in person. We wish all of you peaceful Christmas days, a happy new year, and that the time until June will pass quickly.

You find included, as before, a beautiful version of 'Silent night' by Pam Gleba. For feedback, e-mail Pam. We are looking forward to seeing you all at the 3rd GrevenGrass Festival 2011! With best wishes,

Your GrevenGrass Team
