The Dutch Country Music Association nominated us for the award 'Acoustic band of the Year 2016'. We don't consider music to be be a contest, but we like to thank the DCMA for the recognition. In december we will do a concert in Velp, organized by a Country Radio Show. Maybe this nomination will attract more visitors. Great, as long as they know we're a bluegrass band!!!

Great weather yesterday at the BoetnDeure festival in Odoorn. And great weather meant we were playing in front of a great crowd. I've never seen so many people at the BoetnDeure festival. We received a lot of compliments after the show, so we must have done something right.
