Cup O' Joe in Belgium this coming weekend

Thanks to our friends of Bluegrass in Belgium for news of what is (at present) Belgium's only bluegrass festival. The Low Country Bluegrass Festival will be held this coming weekend (17-19 June 2016) at Venusstraat 10, 2520 Oelegem, about ten miles east of Antwerp.

The lineup of bluegrass and old-time bands from the Low Countries includes Rawhide (the premier Belgian band, who played at Omagh a few years ago) and Blue Maxx (with Jan Michielsen, known in Ireland as a member of 4 Wheel Drive), while the current vitality of Scandinavian bluegrass is shown by the presence of two bands from Sweden.

AND - on stage from 4.15 to 5.00 p.m. on Saturday will be the dynamic Cup O' Joe from Co. Armagh, who made a powerful impact at Westport last weekend. The LCBF website is in Flemish, but the schedule is easy to understand.
