Getting into BU - especially for event organisers
Bluegrass Unlimited magazine, with Marty Raybon on the cover (left), includes several items on contributions to the bluegrass world by bands and individuals from Europe (see the European Bluegrass Blog for details).
This issue also carries the annual BU talent directory, and among the listed artists we're glad to see the names of Niall Toner and I Draw Slow. There is also a reminder for festival organisers on p. 71 that the deadline for submitting entries for the annual festival listing, which will appear in the January 2014 issue, is 1 November 2013.
All entries should give the city, state (if in the US) and other location details, the 2014 dates, and the name and postal address of one contact person, together with one e-mail address, one phone number, and one website address. Irish festivals have put up a good showing in previous BU lists, and we hope to see this maintained.
