4 Wheel Drive in England, 29 Mar.-2 Apr. 2011

Thanks to Jan Michielsen of 4 Wheel Drive (D/NL/B) for these photos from the band's tour in England a month ago. Shortly before it was due to start, the regular 4WD banjo-player Jürgen Biller was obliged to remain at home for family health reasons, and Matthias Malcher (on the left above) stepped in to fill the gap.

Matthias takes a break at Leeds Bluegrass Club on 31 Mar.

The band enjoyed the whole tour, with special mention for the joint concert with the Thunderbridge Bluegrass Boys (UK) in the Arts Centre at Wellington, Somerset, on 1 April. The show was sold out; Jan reports: 'The Thunderbridge Bluegrass Boys are local heroes, and rightfully so.' He also thanks Eugene O'Brien of the Sons of Navarone (B) for help in arranging the tour.

Jan also includes this link to the latest work from Cheap Aldi Camera Productions, with footage and stills from the tour.
