The Polish band WiesBand Bielany (shown above on stage at last month's Spring Bluegrass Festival Willisau in Switzerland) announce that they have given serious thought to starting in their village the first and only Polish bluegrass festival, BluegrassDay Bielany, which is provisionally scheduled for 30 July 2012. A website and Facebook page for the event are in preparation. Meanwhile, the 2012 BluegrassEvening Bielany is planned as an intimate evening with bluegrass music by two or three bands.
The Wiesband Bielany are the first Polish band to perform country music at the Philharmonia of Wroclaw, which they did on 22 May 2011, supporting the Joscho Stephan Quartet. This year they have started their KinderGarden Bluegrass Summit – a series of concerts for children in kindergartens and primary schools. More details are on their website.
