Dear friends of La Roche Bluegrass Festival,
In the current context of the Coronavirus in Europe and French government guidelines, many festivals are cancelling their 2021 events while those that plan to go ahead accept that nothing will be as normal.
The La Roche Bluegrass Festival Organising Committee met recently and decided to do everything possible to put on a series of Bluegrass concerts during the scheduled weekend of the festival from July 30 to August 1.
With a seated, socially distanced audience this will not be the festival that we have all come to know and love. However, we are determined to celebrate Bluegrass music and to give some of our artists a chance to perform in front of a live audience, and we will do our best to put on an event that captures the spirit of La Roche Bluegrass Festival while ensuring the safety of our artists, volunteers and visitors.
We are therefore considering a schedule of 10 - 15 bands on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, and will work accordingly to put in place an organisation that will cater for the approved number of spectators (unknown today), while complying with all protocols and safety measures.
Much still depends on how the battle between the vaccines and the variants swings over the coming weeks and if restrictions are relaxed or reinforced, so nothing is certain although we expect to have some form of reservation system.
We will keep you informed as we make progress.
We wish you all health, harmony and happiness and hope to see as many of you as possible in La Roche-sur-Foron at the end of July.

Précise, rythmique ou mélodique, aussi à l'aise en accompagnement qu'en improvisation, la guitare en Bluegrass présente toutes les facettes de cette musique.
