The Bluegrass Jamboree 2016 is just over.
The Bluegrass Jamboree is organized every year by Rainer Zellner who is a mandolin player by himself and who joins the bands during the session at the end of each show with his Gibson F4.
During three weeks the three bands made a tour through Germany, Austria, the Netherlands and Switzerland. Videos were filmed at several concerts.
I have collected the videos that were made from the concerts in Munich, Berlin, Dreieich, Bischofsmühle, Stuhr and Waldkraiburg in my playlist.
