'Bluegrass im Klosterhof', 5 Jan. 2013

Thanks to Walter of in Germany for YouTube links to performance videos from the bluegrass and old-time-music gathering at the Klosterhof Kusterdingen cultural centre a year ago. They include nice versions by the old-time band Four Potatoes of 'Way down the old plank road' and 'Quince Dillion's high D'. The three videos can be seen here.

The corresponding concert this year, which will take place tomorrow (Sat. 5 Jan. 2013) at the Klosterhof from 19:00 to midnight, is a ticketed event - and it was completely sold out by 22 December 2012, so the organisers advise that anyone without a ticket should not travel to Kusterdingen tomorrow. Bands taking part include:

The County Boys
Big Stone Old Time Country Band (CH)
Four Potatoes
Mister Big Band
Horse Mountain

- and many more. More details are on the Bluegrass im Klosterhof website, including the full concert programme (subject to change without notice).
