Della Mae chosen for American Music Abroad, 2012-13

Della Mae (USA), one of the bands that took part in Rainer Zellner's 3rd Bluegrass Jamboree! touring package in December 2011, have been chosen to represent bluegrass in the American Music Abroad programme for 2012-13.

Run jointly by the American Voices organisation and the US State Department, the programme selects twelve bands for their 'musical excellence and educational ability' to represent American music in tours of other countries. In an interview with John Lawless on Bluegrass Today, we learn that the band are planning a return to Germany. Read the full interview here.
