This project was really important to us. The first edition was in the beginning of August in La Roche sur Foron.

9 kids from 7 to 15 yo, from France, Spain and Nederlands, registered and did it nicely.

Jadey (NL), Célestine (FR), Maëlle (FR), Thomas (FR), Félix (FR), Pablo (SP), Clémence (FR), Alix (FR) et Lila (FR) attended the three morning sessions with Maribel Rivero, Lluis Gomez, Julia Zech and myself.

The workshop ended with a performance on the Lunchtime Stage, as an opening for the afternoon shows.

It was a great joy to see how enthusiastic were thes young musicians, for whatever we would propose. Some of them even tried the bass, for the first time, and on stage!

Of course we are happy and  proud. But we would not have made it so easily without the help and efficiency of Christopher Howard Williams and the Bluegrass In La Roche Festival, and EBMA (European Bluegrass Music Association) and its president Eugene O'Brien.

Thanks to our members and friends for their support. We are already working on the 2023 edition and new actions.

Do you have kids? Add the 1rst weekend of August on your agenda for the festival, and the three days before for Kids On Bluegrass 2023 !
