We have just received news that USA bluegrass band The New Worlds will be returning to Australia in October this year. The members of The New Worlds are some of the hottest young players in the USA currently and will be in Australia for a limited time performing at a few festivals. The band is seeking to fill a few free dates while in Sydney between Monday the 15th and Thursday the 18th of October and are looking to organise a Sydney performace before they head to the JamGrass Festival in Melbourne, then a short tour of NZ before playing at the Dorrigo Folk and Bluegrass Festival.
Here’s an opportunity for someone to take up the challenge and present this young band at your local hotel, a house concert or even a gig in the local hall.
Below is some information regarding The New Worlds and this link to some recently some of their recorded tracks.
The New Worlds consist of: David Goldenberg: mandolin, Shelby Means: bass/vocals, Frank Rische: vocals/guitar, Christian Sedelmyer: fiddle/vocals.
