Update Spring Bluegrass Festival

Paolo Dettwiler of the Spring Festival Organising Committee has the latest news on this festival, which opens the festival season, in Switzerland:

Oh My Darling (CAN)
The 12th edition of the Spring Bluegrass Festival in Willisau, Switzerland on Saturday, May 28, 2011 is only two weeks away and tickets are selling fast. The 2011 Spring Bluegrass Festival welcomes artists from the USA (Special Consensus, Valerie Smith & Liberty Pike), Canada (Oh My Darling) and exclusive performances by major European acts such as Sunny Side (CZ), The Downtown Ramblers (S) and Ila Auto (N). Also performing will be The Oldtime Hayride (D/NL) and Switzerland's own The Country Pickers. A workshop by banjo expert Tom Nechville has been added. A wide choice of food and drinks as well as booths presenting bluegrass instruments and recordings are featured as well. In response to public demand a new extra tent will be installed. In 2010 over 500 people attended the event and the organizing committee is looking forward to even top that this year.
Welcome to a great day of bluegrass entertainment in the heart of Switzerland!
