  • Miniera Acustica Music Summer Camp, Urbino (IT)
    The 7th Miniera Acustica Music Camp at La Corte della Miniera near Urbino in August was a complete success. Students from Italy, France, Belgium, Germany, Switzerland, and Slovenia came to attend music classes and enjoy a relax and family atmosphere (and great food and wine!) in the beautiful rolling hills of the Marche region, near Urbino. This year teachers included the great master flatpicker Russ Barenberg (guitar), Martino Coppo (mandolin), and Henrich Novak (dobro).

  • Ronnie Bowman & the Committee in Italy
    Ronnie Bowman & the Committee (USA) played a sold-out house concert for more than sixty people on 2 August in the Monferrato area (Piemonte region) near Genoa (Genova). The house concert was part of the Arte In Cascina (Art in the Cabin) summer schedule, which included music, comedian, and magician exhibitions in a very nice and old country house, nestled in the mountains near Ovada, IT.
