Lynne Butler on the road - including Abaliget

Lynne Butler (UK) sends the latest playlists for her 'Butler's Boudoir Bluegrass' and 'Lynne Butler's Eurograss' radio shows (see the EBB's separate 'Radio playlists' post), and adds:

Some dates for your diary: I will be touring with Allen Karl for a week over Easter. On the tour I will be doing a 20-minute solo support act during the first part of the evening (apart from the Henley-on-Thames gig, where I'll be the support act for the whole of the first part of the evening) as well as being his backing vocalist for the rest of the evening. Red Rock Country will also be providing support. So, if you wish to buy tickets please contact me and I'll point you in the right direction.

Allen Karl is very classic country, so for those of you who like the classic country sound you will enjoy Allen's show very much. I'll be playing a mixture of genres in my set.

4 Apr. The Clear Cut Country Music Club, Leeds Anglers’ Club, West Yorkshire
5 Apr. The Nightriders Country Music Club, Renishaw Miners’ Welfare Club, North Derbyshire
6 Apr. The Brook, Soham, Cambridgeshire
7 Apr. Harpsden Hall, Henley-on-Thames, South Oxfordshire
9 Apr. United Services Club, Widnes, Cheshire

[On all these shows Lynne will be backing/supporting Allen Karl.]

For an up-to-date calendar listing regarding my gigs either as a solo artist, with the Ukulele Club, my band, the George and Lynne Duo, or anythng else for that matter, please visit my website.

My band will be playing at Orwell Festival in May, and George and I will be at the Hungarian festival in Budapest on 10-12 August [see poster above], performing as well as doing radio coverage; so if some of you could get out there, it would be great to see you... I can't reiterate enough that all these festivals [the major bluegrass festivals throughout Europe] are safe and fun places to take a family.
