Bluedust at Moniaive in September

C. Paul 'Dobroman' Lyttle sends Easter greetings and the playlist link for his Criffel Creek radio show this morning, and announces that the Moniaive Michaelmas Bluegrass Festival has now completed its 2015 lineup by adding Bluedust from Milan, Italy, as top of the bill on Saturday night.

Your editor saw and heard Bluedust at the European World of Bluegrass Festival (EWOB) in the Netherlands two years ago, and enjoyed them very much indeed. The band consists of Perry Meroni (guitar, lead vocals), Dino Barbè (banjo), Josh Villa (mandolin, vocals), Tony Spezzano (guitar, vocals), and Marco 'Fisherman' Centemeri (double bass, vocals), and they're a very solid and driving band whose music comes from Flatt & Scruggs, Bill Monroe, Jim & Jesse, Jimmy Martin, and others of the founding generation of bluegrass. BIB readers who enjoy that vintage of bluegrass might consider a trip to hear them at Moniaive. Any details of other shows by them in these islands will appear on the BIB as soon as we get them.
