The Coloradas (USA): in Europe soon

Thanks to Roy Davis, agent and lead singer for The Coloradas, a USA-based bluegrass band, for the news that their new album has just been released in the US and is due for European release on 15 Feb. 2012 on the German Hometown Caravan label. Roy sends this release:

Roy Davis and Bernie Nye, the songwriting team that brought us the critically acclaimed 'Deadweight' (2009) and 'We are a lightning bolt' (2010), have teamed up with Maine-based and internationally renowned bluegrass musicians Joe Walsh (The Gibson Brothers), Amanda Kowalski (Della Mae) and Steve Roy (Laurie Lewis, Hit & Run Bluegrass) to bring us a collection of songs that combine traditional bluegrass and blues with modern-day stories of life's many concerns.

Several of these names will be well known to European bluegrass audiences (Amanda Kowalski, for example, was touring with Della Mae in Rainer Zellner's 'Bluegrass Jamboree!' in December); Roy himself spends a good deal of time in Austria, home of his fiancee; and the band expect to tour Europe in spring and summer 2012.
