European World of Bluegrass 2002 / Various
45 bands from the far corners of the globe came to showcase in May 2003, at the 5th annual European World of Bluegrass festival, held as always in Voorthuizen, Holland. For three colorful days and nights, banjos, mandolins, guitars, dobros, fiddles, and basses were everywhere, blazing like tulips all over this tiny Dutch town, in and around the festival site, in the marketplace, in front of stores and restaurants. The EWOB festival is the apex of 30 days of bluegrass music events across Europe, a fantastic celebration of International Bluegrass Month, organized by the European Bluegrass Music Association (EBMA), with support from IBMA.
