Lilly Drumeva – Lovin’ You

Bulagrian bluegrass songstress Lilly Drumeva has a new CD on Polysound Records. Lovin’ You was recorded in both Bulgaria, with her band Lilly Of The West, and in Czech Republic, where she recorded with Czech grassers Monogram.

The album features covers of old bluegrass and country music songs and a debut video for the brilliant Townes Van Zandt song, If I Needed You, has been released on YouTube.

It’s a duet with Jakub Racek of Monogram.

You can hear audio samples from several other tracks on Lilly’s web site, and the new CD will be available for purchase soon at CD Baby.

While on the subject of Drumeva, the October 2009 (Issue 37) of Vagabond, an English language monthly publication, includes an article about her and bluegrass in Bulgaria by Ani Ivanova.
