Hi there folks!

This year has been slammed with shows and tour dates. Balsam Range is really hitting its stride, and we are so excited to be touring and performing the new songs off of the Mountain Voodoo CD. It's given us all a shot in the arm to be performing these new songs and tweaking our stage shows to make them better. I know Balsam Range has added a bunch of new tour dates but coming up next is the European tour that we are so excited about. The band is in its 10th year and this will be BR's first trip to Europe. I got to perform in Switzerland and Italy in 2005 with the Alecia Nugent Band, so I'm very excited for our international bluegrass friends to see Balsam Range. We fly out on May 19 heading across the pond. Here are our Europe dates:

  • 5/20 Buhl, Germany - Buhler Bluegrass Fest
  • 5/21 Waldkraiburg, Germany
  • 5/23 Prague, Czech Republic - Koppernik Theatre
  • 5/27 Willisau, Switzerland - Spring Fest
