Westwend in Europe, 14-26 May 2014

Thanks to Wendy Crowe of the US singer/songwriter duo and acoustic crossover group WestWend (Jonathan Maness and Wendy Crowe) for the news that WestWend has been added to the lineup for the 15th Spring Bluegrass Festival in Willisau, Switzerland (24 May 2014) as part of a tour in Europe. They will be backed by a stellar band of Slovak musicians including Richard Cifersky, Michal Barok, and Anton Naroda.

To support the tour, WestWend is recording Linger for a while, a debut bluegrass project on Anteflow Records, scheduled for release this coming summer. The album will showcase Wendy's and Jonathan's songwriting and intricate harmony, and Jonathan's guitar/mandolin playing. Rounding out the record will be a collection of bluegrass standards such as 'I'll remember you, love, in my prayers', a la the Stanley Brothers. Gospel fans will appreciate the beautiful interpretation of Squire Parsons' 'Beulah Land', and instrumentalists will appreciate the all-star cast of Sam Bush, Bryn Davies, Matt Leadbetter, and more. More information on the album is here.

Dates are still available for WestWend's European tour, between 14 and 26 May in continental Europe. To book WestWend for this tour, contact Richard Cifersky, Velvet Music Agency.
