The organising committee of the Spring Bluegrass Festival in Willisau, Switzerland (www.bluegrass-willisau.ch) has announced the full programme for the 15th jubilee edition of their successful event which will feature more music than ever. Their updated website features short presentations of all bands appearing (in German). The festival schedule will be online at the end of March.
The 15th Spring Bluegrass Festival takes place the Swiss Agricultural Museum in Alberswil, next to Willisau, Canton Lucerne, Switzerland on May 24, 2014 (www.museumburgrain.ch)
The bands appearing on two stages at the all-day event are:
- The Karl Shiflett & Big Country Show (USA)
- Foghorn Stingband (USA)
- WestWend (USA/SK)
- Amy Gallatin & Stillwaters (USA)
- Looping Brothers (D)
- Zydeco Annie & Swamp Cats (D)
- Janis McCoury & The Wall of Sound (NL)
- Bluegrass Family (CH)
- The Millers (CH)
The Karl Shiflett & Big Country Show's appearance is an absolutely exclusive one; the band will be flown especially for the festival. The Karl Shiflett & Big Country Show will also perform in a more intimate setting in downtown Willisau on Friday, May 23 and at a church service at the festival site on Sunday, May 25, 2014.
Advance ticket sales have been very strong so far and a sold-out festival is expected.
The organising committee is looking forward to meeting old and new friends as well as a formidable set of bands from all over Europe and the USA.
