Music Contact tour news, Nov. 2013: further update

Rainer Zellner and his Music Contact team send the latest news on tours by bands in bluegrass and related music in the November 2013 Music Contact newsletter.

In response to a suggestion received, the European Bluegrass Blog is putting this information before its readers in a new way. Instead of reproducing the lists of dates, we are giving links to the schedules as they appear on the Music Contact website. These contain more information, including links to venue websites and contact data. We also give links both to bands' own websites in English, and to Music Contact information ('MC bio') about them in German.

Please let us know whether you like this new format!
