Al Ras Bluegrass & Old Time Festival - an update!


In  June, we posted about the Al Ras Bluegrass & Old Time festival and it's campaign to raise funding to continue the festival (the original blog post is here).

GOOD NEWS....

Al Ras has raised the money that it needed to ensure that this year's festival could go ahead and the organisers have said that they are now booking bands.

This is a video about Al Ras that was originally posted in June:


More information about Al Ras Bluegrass & Old Time Festival can be found on their website or Facebook page.

One of the organisers of Al Ras is Lluís Gómez, so if you are visiting Barcelona, throughout August he will be playing every Saturday at the MEAM (European Museum of Modern Art) at 13:00.

The Lluís Gómez Swing Trio comprises Lluís on banjo and violin, Oriol Gonzàlez on manouche guitar and mandolin and Maribel Rivero on Double Bass.More information can be found here.
