Hillbilly Heaven


Hillbilly Heaven is an activity of the bluena_t11.jpg - 6816 Bytes Country Club sponsored by the Streichholz-Schachtel Acoustic Music Shop. It is your forum to perform and join sessions on stage and besides. It is open to professionals amateurs and ad-hoc bands who love to perform in a vivid style. It is the annual big jamboree following occasional sessions in the "Country Club". It is not a festival and not a commercial event but the biggest Bluegrass Party in the wild South with nothing to win but fun, fun, fun. It started small and it is growing great. See here what you missed and what is waiting for you!
