Lynne Butler broadcasts more EWOB Festival highlights TONIGHT

Lynne Butler (UK) sends the playlist for tonight's programme in her 'Butler's Boudoir Bluegrass' series (see the EBB's separate 'Radio playlists' post), which like last week's is all about the EWOB (European World of Bluegrass) Festival, held in the Netherlands at the beginning of June. Lynne reports:

You will hear various interviews followed by tracks of the artists interviewed, interspersed also with tracks from those bands that performed but that I didn’t get to interview.

Part 2 of the EWOB highlights is this evening and tomorrow, as part 1 was aired last week. Also, you can hear part 2 all over again from Monday night on 'Lynne Butler’s Eurograss' on Bluegrass Planet Earth at 21:00 repeated on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday.

The interviews are really quite fun, as many of the artists have a wonderful sense of humour so you should really enjoy them - I had fun interviewing. There are lots of giggles. I do hope you enjoy. You can find out more about any of the bands by contacting me for further information.

The next festival that I’ll be attending and doing radio coverage for is La Roche on 4, 5, 6 & 7 August, so keep ears and eyes open for all the interviews and updates on that too - and of course tune into UK Country Radio over that weekend to hear all my updates while there, and of course the follow-up highlights show. Then it will be Didmarton and then Cornwall.

Update 8 July: Lynne's Butler's enthusiastic full-page report on this year's EWOB Festival appears in the current issue of British Bluegrass News, #57 (summer 2011).
