Bluegrass 43: new video from new CD

The cover of The witch: (l-r) Philippe Ochin, Jean-Marc Delon, Alain Audras, Jean-Paul Delon

Bluegrass 43, France's oldest working bluegrass band, were the subjects of the 'cover story' (written by Christopher Howard-Williams with Philippe Ochin) in Bluegrass Europe #79 (April-June 2011). Since then, the band have released their latest CD, The witch, on 21 June. The six tracks show their broad musical minds: 'I've just seen a face', 'The witch', 'Mr Jones', 'Never again', 'Carolina Star', and 'With a memory like mine'. It can be bought online here for €7.00 (France), €7.50 (rest of Europe), or €8.00 (rest of world).

Bluegrass 43 have also made a new video to accompany the CD release. 'Never again' can be seen on YouTube (where there are many other performance videos of the band). The verdict of the EBMA's chairperson is: 'Awesome!'

You can also find the band on Facebook. Thanks to Jean-Marc Delon, Bluegrass 43's banjo-player, for the news.
