News from Lynne Butler

Singer, bandleader, and radio presenter Lynne Butler (UK) sends current playlists for her weekly 'Butler's Boudoir Bluegrass' and 'Lynne Butler's Eurograss' radio shows (see the EBB's separate 'Radio playlists' post). Lynne writes: has got several songs in the running for a 'Listener's Award' including one of mine, 'I'm blue'. So if you have got time and the inclination then please feel free to stop by and cast your vote on your favourite song - doesn't have to be mine :).

Lynne is touring in the UK early in April with the classic country singer Allen Karl (UK; see poster image above), and will be playing in Sweden in early May. Full details of all her performance dates are on her website. Her newsletter also provides a great deal of information on bluegrass-related events and activities in Britain and the rest of Europe, including the major European festivals, and ends with an EBMA link enabling readers to join the association.

This year Lynne will be attending the EWOB Festival in Voorthuizen, the Jamboree in the Czech Republic, Abaliget in Hungary, and La Roche in France, as well as festivals in the UK.
