Dutch country and bluegrass periodical, Country Gazette, is scheduled to publish it’s last issue next month. The magazine has been in publication for 35 years, covering all things country and bluegrass in Northern Europe. On April 26, 2008, the May/June issue number 368 will be the last one.
Publishers Hans and Jannie van Dam are retiring, and have not found anyone to take over publication of the magazine. They have spent a great many years supporting the music and I’m sure fans and subscribers will be sorry to see them go.
The last issue promises a complete overview of festival and concert dates for the calendar year 2008, along with suggested websites and other resources for fans to continue keeping up with the music in the future.
