Belgium buzzes with bluegrass

Bluegrass in Belgium sends greetings and this news:

Lots of new bluegrass concerts announced on the calendar.

Also check out every Sunday evening at 23:00, 'Closing Time' on VRT Radio 1, presented by Johan Heldenbergh (Broken Circle Breakdown), with old country songs and some bluegrass. Very interesting!

A new bluegrass festival in Oelegem, Belgium, called 'Low Country Bluegrass Festival' on 29-30 June. A very nice initiative by Blue Maxx [above] with bands from Belgium, Germany, the Netherlands, UK, and the Czech Republic. Make sure to support this festival in any way you can - for example, by buying tickets on

Also don’t forget the annual European World of Bluegrass in Voorthuizen (NL) with about 40 European bands on 9-11 May. Still only two hours away from Brussels!
