BIB readers who are also fans of Herschel Sizemore will be glad to learn of a new 57-minute DVD, Herschel Sizemore: mandolin in B, filmed at a tribute concert early last year, with many bluegrass stars taking part. Read more on Bluegrass Today.


Thanks to UKBluegrass for a reminder that though the most active part of the 2013 season is coming to an end, the UKB archive is a valuable resource - and not just about bluegrass in Britain.
