More tributes to Bill Keith

Bluegrass in Belgium announces the following special arrangements for this month's jam session at Mazy, about 15 km north-west of Namur. The photo shows Bill Keith in the 1970s.

In memory of banjo genius Bill Keith, who died last Friday, a Bill Keith special is organised this Friday (30 October) at Mazy. Bill will be honoured and remembered with stories by his long-time personal friends Steve [Louvat] and Thierry [Schoysman]. But also with your stories if you have some. There will be a screen to show pictures and videos. There will be demonstration of his banjo style, some of his tunes, and the duets that Bill loved to play.

And of course, we will jam.

Zy’coop place, 9a rue de l’usine, 5032 Mazy. 30/10/2015 at 20:00
