Donna Ulisse in Russia - on the Bluegrass Blog

Bluegrass singer/songwriter Donna Ulisse (USA) and her band, the Poor Mountain Boys, are recording their experiences in Russia on a day-by-day travelogue on the original Bluegrass Blog - and the trip is clearly becoming a moving experience for them. Donna writes from Vologda:

... We [American and Russian musicians] played in solidarity as friends …weaving all of our styles of bluegrass like a fine quilt and making us all smile like Christmas morning. There is not a warmer feeling anywhere…

Update 19 July 2011: Donna's subsequent accounts of her experiences are equally positive. Read all the instalments of her travelogue from the Bluegrass Blog:
