Working with U.S. Embassy Minsk, HDI arranged for lead guitarist of Guns N’ Roses and Cultural Envoy Ron “Bublefoot” Thal to do a quick Cultural Diplomacy tour in Minsk, The Republic of Belarus.

Bumblefoot arrived in the capital of Belarus late on the night of April 27, 2014.  The following day was a whirlwind of activity for him.  He started with an interview at FM station, ran immediately to do a guitar workshop at Belarusian State Music College  and then went on to the TNT Rock Club to meet  local musicians and discuss the topic “How to be a Self-Managed Artist”.  That evening Bumblefoot did a jam session with local musicians at the Coyote Club.

In less then 24 hours Bumblefoot brought the best of American Rock to the people of Minsk…..that is the work of a truly dedicated U.S. Cultural Envoy.
