Bluegrass News from Switzerland

Kent Miller reports from Switzerland:

Hi Folks,
 

Junior Sisk and Ramblers Choice are the headliners for the next big event in Switzerland, The 14th Spring Festival (in) Willisau.



Junior is also in Basel the next day. So if you're coming up anyway, be sure to plan your trip around May 18th.

Rawhide from Belgium and De Stroatklinkers from the Netherlands are also playing at the festival. They set up two stages, so you really get the big festival feeling while staying warm and out of the rain indoors. Even if you can't make it then, there is usually something Bluegrass going on, especially if you like to pick a tune or two.

There are even two new jams that started last month. One in Pratteln by Basel and one in Aarau. There will be whole day jams in May and July.

Talk about camp fire picking. Be sure to check out the calendar of events at www.bluegrass.ch. All the jams in Switzerland are open to the public. Chris Jones will be here in early May before he goes down to Bühl, Germany for their festival.

Happy Trails to you,
