One of the reasons I enjoy going every two years to the WithoutBorders Festival, held at Balchik Castle near Varna, Bulgaria, is first, for the camaraderie between those of us who want to promote good music. The second reason is that the talent on display is magnificent.

The Louvat Bros. are from Belgium, but you’d never know it if you didn’t hear them speak. They have a passion for Americana which dwarfs the modern bluegrass scene in the United States. They’re also not afraid to take risks, mixing influences from Bulgaria, Hungary and the Celtic world.

A review of their recent release on Acoustic Music Records from Germany is forthcoming.

All thanks to Patrick De Loecker for introducing me to their music.
