Our set went like a dream, with very enthousiastic response from the crowd that came to…see us play on the stage, which was set in the middle of the Continue reading →

Swapping jokes

Swapping jokes with Wilbur Tharpe and Peter Rowan

Hi folks!

We had us a great time at the Appalachian and Bluegrass music festival in Omagh, N-Ireland again. We met a lot of our friends and made us many new ones. The shows all went very well and we sold out on the cds. Especially the show at the sold out marquee, on Saturday night, was fantastic! Also the sessions at the pub near where we were staying were great. The organiser of the festival Continue reading →

On Friday we played at a festival featuring country, rockabilly and bluegrass music in The Hague at the Grote Markt, right in the city centre. Also performing were our friends from ‘K.C. Credit and the Cashiers’ and ‘Stringcaster’. It was great to see those guys again, as well as catching up with our local friends that came to see us all play.  Continue reading →

It has been a wonderful weekend again. First, on Friday, we played In Schaffhausen. A gig Tina Clark organised for us. The name of the bar is Dolder2, and we sure had a lot of fun. Saw some old friends and made some new ones. We sure will be back there sometime. Thanks Tina, for your hospitality!

On Saturday we travelled to our friend Jacob, who used to own the bar ‘Ledig Erf’ here in Utrecht. He now runs a place in the Vosges Mountains: La Haute FourcheContinue reading →

Our summer holiday break is coming up, so it’s time to reflect some on the passed couple of months. We had some pretty memorable gigs and made lots of new friends. It was a pretty eclectic mix of events where we performed: apart from our clubdates we played at bluesfestivals, rockabilly festivals, a jazzfestival, a punk/garage/hardcore festival and later in the year we’ll be at the ‘Into the great wide open’- Continue reading →

CD ‘Hits of Hank Williams’

BGB-CD02-HWflyer-klNEW CD OUT NOW:

‘Hits of Hank Williams’ – Blue Grass Boogiemen

This album is the last in a series of Dutch artists covering American countrymusic icons, initially put out by the Dutch ‘Starsound’ label (which no longer is in business; fortunately the CRS label was willing to release this one). A few years ago Starsound Records owner Ruud Pennings asked us to do a ‘Hits of Hank Williams’ cd for his project. Though at first we thought that an album featuring only somewhat more obscure numbers instead of hits of ‘the Hillbilly Shakespeare’ would suit us better, we simply just couldn’t resist the offer. Hence often covered favorites as Continue reading →

WIBGB-17-klWell, Arnold is back from his trip to the planet of Butch Robins. And what a trip it was! Everything went very well and Robins has pointed out that he wants him back for every tour he’s going to organise for the World International Blue Grass Band.
