[For those not yet familiar with it, this is the first book written about the bluegrass genre scene in Holland by Loes van Schaijk, with beautiful photos by Marieke Odenkerk. It is written in English. In the past several months since its release the book has received high praise from scholars and reviewers around the world.]
|2015 Boete'n Deur Festival in Odoorn, NL|
A number of Dutch and American musicians will attend, perform, and jam at this 'festival' in the city center of Emmen. The authors of the book will also be present. The "High Lonesome" stage is located on the lawn under the trees at the Emmen Town Hall ("onder de bomen bij het gemeentehuis", in Dutch). This location is walking distance from the train station.
This is short notice, but an event worth mentioning. The weather prediction is good, and Emmen is not far from Germany and Belgium. It should be a great day of music, friendship and a chance to buy your copy of a quality bluegrass book about the scene in Holland directly from the authors.
Of course, in the familiar tradition unique to bluegrass -- Bring your instruments for jamming!!
