In the waiting for this summer to begin, we got our hands on some great photos from last summers Europe tour, snapped by photographer Marie Herdensjö. Here’s a few of them and more can be find under “photos“:

And then the bad news..
Bluegrass pioneer and banjo legend, Earl Scruggs died two days ago, on March 28. Practically every banjo player, including myself has Earl to thank for a big part of our sound and the style we play in. As Steve Martin put it: “Few players have changed the way we hear an instrument the way Earl has, putting him in a category with Miles Davis, Louis Armstrong, Chet Atkins, and Jimi Hendrix.”
Rest in peace Earl, and thank you for the music!
