A Little Saturday Nite Bluegrass Div (Road Trip subsection)

Tonite finds me halfway between Ok City and Barstow …… Somewhere buried below most of Interstate 40 is that highway made legendary by Bobby Troup. Traveled it so many times as a kid and think I've read every Burma Shave sign that there ever was.
This appears to be a European Group performing at a Bluegrass festival in 2009 at La Rouche Sur Foron  - - which could be French for something …….
No info on the artists, sorry.
