2011 American Headliner: Donna Ulisse
It’s official on her site, so I can finally announce it here. Donna Ulisse and the Poor Mountain Boys will be the American headliner act for this year’s Jamboree… that’s a WOW folks! If you’re not familiar with Donna, check out her bio.
Ekaterinburg Dates Set
So far, the jamboree has 2 events on the following dates:
- July 12-13 Vologda, Russia
- July 15-16 Yekaterinburg, Russia
More as I have time to extract details from the organizers at the U.S Consulate, St. Petersburg. They’ll be on the Russia-American Bluegrass Jamboree website as well.
EBMA Discovers the Jamboree
I just received an email from Ms. Angelika Torrie, the President of the European Bluegrass Music Association (EBMA) editor of BLUEGRASS EUROPE magazine. She found my first post about the Jamboree and got in touch with me for more info. The EBMA website and the magazine will include info about the event. Who knows… maybe we’ll get some international pickers attending this year. Anyway, it’s an exciting development.
