The fourth La Roche Bluegrass Festival was held on 29 July-2 Aug. 2009 in La Roche-sur-Foron, Haute Savoie, France, a very pleasant town with a medieval core (left) among spectacular scenery (right) and with friendly people (below) who give generous and essential support to a festival that attracts 10,000-12,000 visitors annually with no admission charges and no disorder. This year Ireland was well represented by the Skillet Lickers from Drogheda (Jim MacArdle, Mick Dunne, and Dick McGarry). Interested? More text and photos here...
