Rhonda Vincent in Europe

Thanks to Herb Sandker of Upper Management Music for this news:

Rhonda Vincent & the Rage are travelling abroad, leaving behind their Martha White Bluegrass Express for trains, planes, and automobiles. The international bluegrass star and All American Bluegrass Girl, Rhonda Vincent, with her band the Rage, set a personal European record with two consecutive SOLD OUT SHOWS in Laufen, Switzerland, on 27 and 28 July 2011.

'This was my sixth visit to Switzerland. It feels like my second home', Rhonda shares from her Paris hotel room. 'The people are so warm and friendly, and I so enjoy the overall feeling of the country... We are thrilled to have sold out shows, and to meet many new fans, along with our Swiss friends.'

The Swiss venue was purchased and renovated by the family who owns the famous Swiss cough drops, Ricola. The venue houses a music school, with the intended purpose of educating and featuring musical artists.

In addition to the Swiss performances, they appeared on Saturday 30 July 2011 in Craponne, France, as the headlining artist of the Craponne Country Music Festival - Festival Country Rendez-Vous de Craponne sur Arzon.

Fans of Rhonda Vincent & the Rage traveled many miles to enjoy their style of acoustic music: from neighboring countries such as Holland, Norway, England, Ireland, Belgium, Switzerland, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, and even a couple from the USA travelled halfway around the world to hear their favourite group in both European settings.

After their performances in Laufen, Switzerland, and Craponne, France, Rhonda Vincent & the Rage traveled to Paris, France, to visit the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre with the 'Mona Lisa' being a highlight not to miss. They will remain in Paris until their return to the US later in the week. Other areas visited on their tour include Africa, Sicily, Italy, Spain, and Malta.
