2013 Liz Meyer-European Innovation of Bluegrass Music Award

Thanks to Pieter Groenveld of the EWOB Festival committee for sharing this great news:
This year's "Liz Meyer- European Innovation of Bluegrass Music Award" went to Rawhide (Belgium) for the following good reasons:
The most active band throughout the history of EWOB -- having performed in Voorthuizen every year since 1998 -- Rawhide was selected as the winner of this year's Liz Meyer European Innovation of Bluegrass Music Award in recognition of their long-running success in bringing bluegrass music to a broader audience.
In its 35-year history, the band has developed its own unmistakable and immediately recognizable sound, and has become an undeniable presence and driving force in the European bluegrass scene.
The members of Rawhide have combined their vocal and instrumental proficiency, their love of traditional bluegrass and their expertise in numerous other musical genres with imagination, creativity and humor, to create a unique sound and stage show that has extended the borders of bluegrass music in Europe.
