More good news for Bühl Bluegrass Festival

The Badisches Tagblatt newspaper for the Baden region of Germany has published a feature (left above) on the nomination of Della Mae (USA) for the 2014 Grammy Awards. The all-women band, based in the Boston (Mass.) area, will be the headliners at this year's International Bühl Bluegrass Festival (2-3 May 2014).

This world oft can be, their latest album, was nominated for the Best Bluegrass Album award. As Walter Fuchs, director of the Bühl festival, points out, this is a remarkable achievement for such a young group. The photo shows the members of Della Mae attending the awards ceremony on 26 January.

The festival celebrates a further boost in its new poster (above right), which reflects the sponsorship this year by the Josef Oechsle company, suppliers of agricultural and other machinery and equipment.
