Thanks to C. Paul 'Dobroman' Lyttle of Moniaive in south-west Scotland for the news that the next Moniaive Michaelmas Bluegrass Festival will be held on 26, 27, and 28 September 2014, with the full lineup consisting of two American, two Scottish, and two English bands.

The four-piece band of Carpenter & May (USA) will headline Saturday night; and the Whitetop Mountain Band (USA), whose latest CD cover is shown on the right, will headline Friday night. Also on the bill are the Dirty Beggars (Scotland), the Mairs Family Band (Scotland), Dalebilly (England), and the Jaywalkers (England). Tickets will be on sale from April onwards. More details are on the Festival website.

Paul also presents the fortnightly 'Criffel Creek' record show on Alive Community Radio from Dumfries, Scotland - see the EBB's separate 'Radio playlists' post.
