Downhill Bluegrass Band kick off the first 'Möklinta Bluegrass Hayride'

Downhill Bluegrass Band, one of Sweden's most prominent and respected bluegrass bands, initiate a wintertime festival in Sweden. Along with Torsåker Bluegrass Association, organiser of Sweden's biggest bluegrass festival, Torsåker Bluegrass Festival, they make an attempt to establish an event that takes place indoors in winter time. The first occasion is on 26 November at Möklintagården, close to Sala, in central Sweden.

The release of Downhill's fourth album, A grasshopper's lament, is receiving great reviews from the US media as well as from European ones, and the band will be headlighting the evening. They also perform along with Appalachian Roots (USA) in Stockholm on 24 November.
