3rd Italian Bluegrass Meeting

Danilo Cartia sends his best Season greetings and announces the next edition of the Italian Bluegrass Meeting 2015.

The 2014 successful edition held last June, as part of the well-known Acoustic Guitar Meeting that takes place every year in Sarzana (Italy), presented Tim O’Brien as special guest. The next year edition of the AGM, on May 29, will have as important guests as Mark Johnson & Emory Lester, and Russ Barenberg.
They will perform on the main stage in the evening concert and, during the day, they will lead banjo, mandolin and guitar workshops with free entrance. A special area with a dedicated stage will be reserved for the event, where bluegrass artists and bands will alternate shows, jam sessions and more workshops.

All bluegrass musicians willing to participate are invited to register free by sending an e-mail to the organizer Danilo Cartia (banjoman@fastwebnet.it). The workshops are at free entrance but will be held based on a minimum participants number, so do not forget to indicate if you are interested in participating in one or more workshops.

For additional infos you can also join the Facebook group of the Italian Bluegrass Meeting, check the news on the bluegrass meeting blog — work still in progress on the latter — or contact Danilo Cartia.

So, save the date and make a wish come true, come to Italy and play bluegrass!
