Thailand Country & Bluegrass festival 2009

Blue Mountain Boys - one of the bands appearing at the Thailand Country and Bluegrass Music FestivalThe Thailand Country & Bluegrass festival that debuted last year is set for a repeat engagement in 2009.

The event has been a labor of love for festival organizer Thanit Tanitapanee, who has worked hard to see this come to light. He tells us that a growing segment of the Thai people are interested in country and bluegrass music, along with cowboy culture, clothing and head wear.

Hats off to Thanit for seeing this through, and congratulations for making it to a second year. Here are a few details he sent…

After 1 year of long trying to make, this year the festival will be on Dec, 26 2009 with Rodeo day event at Khao Yai Nakornrachasima – close to Khao Yai World Heritage.

Meet Thai’s bluegrass & country bands:

  • The Blue Mountain boys
  • The Outlaw Brothers
