G2 at Coastline Bluegrass Music Event, 3-5 June 2011

The Coastline Bluegrass Music Event in North Wales has issued a sound file of 'Conwy' on the Event's latest press release. 'Conwy' is the first single out from the new album Untapped routes by Swedish bluegrass band G2; it was written during a previous appearance in North Wales, and they will be topping the bill again at this year's Event (3-5 June 2011). The release continues:

G2 has been touring the US, playing all around the country for 4 months (July-October 2010). The band has toured the US several times and has appeared at the Ryman Auditorium and IBMA Fan Fest in Nashville, TN.

They were awarded #1 European Bluegrass Band in 2007 and have since then released their critically acclaimed debut album Where the tall grass grows in 2007 (Cosmos Records). They have appeared on national television in Sweden, they have toured Europe, supported acts like Jim Lauderdale, opened for Kris Kristofferson. Their upcoming album features guest artists like Kurt Nilsen (World Idol winner 2004), Cherryholmes, and Ron Stewart.

They turn heads thanks to their fresh sound and original material, connecting to a younger audience as well as paying respect to the bluegrass tradition.

'Conwy' is available as a free download here. For more info call 07711 244418 or e-mail me, John Prytherch.
