Lilly of the West news January 2013

Lilly Drumeva reports from Bulgaria:

Happy new year to all! It was a good year for Lilly of the West! We released a new album, Swings & heartaches, and three brand new singles with supporting videos; we completed successful tours in Russia and Lithuania; we recruited two new band members, Lucy Stoynev (fiddle) and Paul Malini (drums), and we had lots of concerts during the summer, fall, and winter.

Lilly Drumeva has made her debut with a jazz/swing orchestra, Old Gold, with a brand new jazz repertoire.

In January LOTW visited Ireland - the land of music - and had great success at the Shannonside Winter Music Weekend. The band shared the stages with Grammy nominees Special Consensus.

Lilly Drumeva has re-edited the video to 'I needed you', a duet with Czech bluegrass singer/guitarist Jakub Racek (Monogram), which can be seen on YouTube.

Lilly will attend the 5th European Bluegrass Summit in Prague, 14-16 March, where she will perform with top-notch Czech musicians. And there is more to come in 2013… We’ll keep you posted!
