Among the things we are particularly proud to publicize and encourage on Bluegrass Today are the efforts of non-US bands and musicians who perform and record bluegrass music. Living as we do in the southeastern United States where this music first took root, it is difficult to imagine the degree of dedication and perseverance required to master the music which our bluegrass cousins in Europe, Asia or Australia muster in support of their passionate embrace of bluegrass.
We first mentioned the Italian band, Bononia Grass, back in October of 2005 when one of their songs was selected for the EWOB live showcase CD. We are delighted to pass along word that they have just released their debut, self-produced recording, entitled Thinking it…blue!
Audio samples are available on their web site for most of the CD’s 14 tracks.
