Second Annual Castle Picking Party (Netherlands)


Het Kasteel in Groningen, NL
After a very successful first event in 2011, producers Hans Kelderhuis en Ben Wiltjer are inviting bluegrass, folk and old-time acoustic musicians to attend the Castle Picking Party in Groningen, Netherlands / Sunday, September 23, 2012.

There will be jamming from 13.00 until 21.00. In addition to jamming inside and outdoors, there will be 8 bands perfoming in the small concert hall on the second level of this beautiful castle.


The day of jamming will be followed by an 'After Party' in the Castle's cafe with performances from three additional bands: Stringtime, Lazy Tater and Whiskey Rose.

This event is free to the public, but the organizers would like to know how many visitors / musicians expect to attend. You may sign-up in advance at Castle Picking Party.
 
Parking is rather easy to find on the streets surrounding the building. An outstanding and impressive venue. The castle has several small rooms for jamming. There is a garden area outside and various other outdoor jamming spaces. A great ending to your musical summer!
