Thinking of touring in Europe?

That is the title of a new section on the European Bluegrass Music Association’s web site, designed to offer some tips and guidelines for bluegrass bands considering the feasibility of a European tour.

Included is information on obtaining EBMA’s European Bluegrass Directory, and an quick overview of some of the logistical issues to be evaluated, like transportation, accomodations, currency exchange, cultural differences, merchandise sales and how to estimate total expenses.

The guide is not meant as a complete step-by-step manual, but will surely give any artist (or their management) some questions to ponder when thinking about a performance trip to Europe.
