reggie miles Festivals in Europe? (14) RE: Festivals in Europe? 20 Apr 11

That's great to hear Folkiedave! I hope it's not too late to get a response from them regarding adding me to their list of entertainers.

Well, given the number of folks from the other side of the pond, that frequent this site and the number of posts having to do with the music scene over there, I was kind of hoping for a bit more specific insight to be offered, from those who are familiar with that neck o' the woods. Perhaps, the majority of you are from a narrow part of that vast expanse, on the other side and I should being asking for any info you might be willing to offer from your specific areas, regarding festivals that might be willing to feature an American with a homemade resophonic guitar and a hand saw.

So, I'm now thinking that I should expand my horizons to also include the UK and Ireland in my search for additional venues that might be willing to host my endeavors. I might as well. I'd love to consider that I'll be invited to return or that other opportunities will arise once I'm there and folks get an earful of what I have to offer. I'd love to have another opportunity like this. However, should something unforeseen delay that return, I would really enjoy seeing as much as I can and being able to share my music with as many as I can while there.

So, are there any Mudcatters in the UK or Ireland that would be willing to hip me to the best Folk and Blues venues or festivals that might consider hosting my acoustic bottleneck Folk/Blues while I'm in the area? Of course, if a guy playing a guitar made out of recycled garage sale junk and flexing razor sharp spring steel teeth betwixt his knees, with the pointy parts mere millimeters away from body parts that don't grow back, isn't interesting enough to consider, I will also be traveling with a partner while on this adventure. He is, perhaps, the world's best known spoon player. He's the guy featured on Soundgarden's Grammy Award winning song, Cd and video "Spoonman".
