Photos from the La Roche bluegrass festival

Here is a gallery of photos I have been meaning to get up for three weeks now! Thanks so much to Lilly Pavlak who took these at the La Roche Bluegrass Festival in France which ran from July 28-August 1.

Lily was especially proud to note that the top three bands in the European Band contest at La Roche were from the Czech Republic. 1st place went to G-Runs & Roses, 2nd to Blackjack and 3rd to Dessert.

As Lilly put it…

“It shows once again, that the Czech Bluegrass rules the Europe!”

Well OK then. Without specifically endorsing her sentiments, here is a sampling of the many fine photos she sent from the La Roche fest.

    The LaRoche festival is a fine one; any Bluegrass Blog readers thinking about making a visit to Europe should think about going! And not to slight any other part of the European bluegrass community, but the level of Czech bluegrass is indeed notably high. I was tickled to have Blackjack record one of my songs on their latest CD, That Old Book Of Mine – they did a fine job of it.
