I got a cigar box, I cut a hole in the top, put a board and nail it on there. And I taken four nails, put wire on 'em from a screen door for strings. I couldn't play it, but I rapped the sides, hootin' and hollerin'. I thought I was doin' something you know. - Furry Lewis recalls his first guitar

The Little Brothers in Sighisoara, Romania - 24-26 Feb 2011
« on: October 27, 2010, 07:48:14 PM »
Really! - we're confirmed for the Sighisoara Blues Festival in Sighisoara Romania on February 24th, 2011  (the current website displays the 2010 lineup).  We got the offer earlier this year, and at first I thought it couldn't possibly be serious.  It took a while to work out the details...  I had to write my first contract & technical rider, but the three of us (Kim, Mike and me) will be traveling to Romania next February to perform.

The festival runs from the 24th to the 26th, and we'll be there for the duration of the festival - a performance on the 24th and a workshop on the 25th or 26th - the actual date and time for that hasn't been worked out yet.  That being said, I wonder of there are weenies out there who could suggest other performance opportunities in Romania, Italy, or countries in-between...  Austria, maybe?  I know it's a longshot, but if we can get offered a festival gig in Romania, then ANYTHING must be possible!

I need to get a travel itinerary together within the next couple of weeks, so any additional gigs need to be identified by the end of next week (5-November). You can PM me here or send a note to frankie <at> donegone <dot> net.

Thanks!

Wow, congratulations Frank, that is really terrific!

You might contact Steve James, he was the cultural ambassador to Bulgaria last year.  Just one country over. :)  Here is the thread:

Congrats to the Little Brothers!

I forgot about Ambassador James. I think they should put him in charge of the UN.

We have at least one member who lives in Austria.

And one who lives in Belgium.

And one who gigs in Berlin, who may have contacts elsewhere.

I'll just mention that and let them step forward if they wish.

Congratulations on the gig!

Thanks, everybody - for the tips & encouragement!  It's a big (huge, really) deal for us, and not without its share of complicated logistics...  there's no doubt this would have been a lot easier when I was in my 20s and my job was basically disposable!

I wish we could get out to the UK and Belgium...  might have to wait until next time...  :(

Even Italy is gonna have to wait until next time...  too complicated from our end, and lots to get done in the meantime!
