Media coverage of 3rd European Bluegrass Summit

The Acher- und Bühler Bote newspaper in the Baden area of south-west Germany contains a half-page interview by Klaus-Peter Maier with Angelika Torrie, chairperson of the EBMA, about the forthcoming 3rd European Bluegrass Summit, which will be held in Bühl on 18-20 February 2011 with a record attendance of almost fifty participants.

The interview also mentions the role of the EBMA after its first ten years, the new German Bluegrass Music Association, the Bühl International Bluegrass Festival, the continuing appeal of bluegrass music 100 years after the birth of Bill Monroe, and the concert which will form a high point in this year's Summit. There are also photos of Angelika Torrie and of 4 Wheel Drive, who will be part of the concert lineup on 19 February.
