The "Bavarian Blue" History and Future

Dieter Rahner founded "Bavarian Blue" as a band playing Bluegrass, Folk, Country and Blues in 1978 as he wanted to make some "fun music" with some friends for a show called "Der wilde wilde Westen" (The wild, wild west). They were looking for printed music and ran across some Bluegrass tunes including "Soldiers Joy" and "Fire On The Mountain". Ever since he played the 5-string banjo as his first love. Over the years he has found many friends sharing "his" music and fun in promoting it.

Jürgen and Michael changed the instruments after some time to have a new sound and experience for themselves and the band.
