Donna Ulisse and Europe - 2011, 2012

The latest e-newsletter from Donna Ulisse (USA) reports on the journey to Russia by her and the Poor Mountain Boys: 'It was the most wonderful experience, one that I will not likely get over in my lifetime. Talk about your positive energy….whew! They love bluegrass in Russia….who knew?'

Donna's report includes links to all the instalments of her travel diary that appeared on the Bluegrass Blog, as well as to a previous article in Acousticana Journal and a photo album set up by the US Consulate in Yekaterinburg.

Donna is now represented in Europe by Peter van Zeijl's Music Adrift agency (NL), and a European tour is being planned for August 2012, taking in the Netherlands, Germany, Belgium, Denmark, and possibly Sweden. Promoters, venue owners, and event organisers can contact Peter by e-mail. Read the whole e-newsletter here.

Update 28 July: Donna will be playing songs from her new CD and talking about her Russian experiences on WSM radio on Friday morning, 29 July 2011. See her latest bulletin and listen in online.
