Blackjack wins at La Roche

Lilly Pavlak has a piece up on the European Bluegrass Music Association blog about the prestigious band competition at this past weekend’s La Roche Bluegrass Festival in France.

She reports that the winners for 2011 are:

  1. Blackjack (Czech Republic)
  2. Blueland (Slovakia)
  3. Lazy Tater (Netherlands)

Blackjack took second place at La Roche in 2010. Where do they go from here?

Here are a few more of Lilly’s photos from the band competition; more can be found at

Congratulations to all the winners!
