Bluegrass Music Denmark news

Spencer Sorenson reports:

Our spring concert season is winding down, and we will finish with a visit from Rocks & Ivy from Belgium and Holland. We have had a full schedule this spring, with two Swedish bands (South Drive and a return visit from the Hillfillies), a Norwegian band (Julie and the New Favorites, also returning to our stage), and the first-time visit of the Danish group Muleskinner. We were also extremely pleased to host one of the best European bands, G Runs 'n Roses, and the first-class American band the Gibson Brothers, who started their European tour in Copenhagen. Plans are already made for the fall, and we start out with a brand new Danish band, Ungrassified. We are pleased to have some new bands starting here, and hope that the trend continues.

We are beginning a compilation of the history of bluegrass music in Denmark, and if any of you have pictures or other relevant historical material from Danish participation in European events that you could loan us, we would be happy to receive it, and will of course return it.
