Petr Brandejs Band news

This information from Petr Brandejs expands, corrects, and replaces the EBB post of 19 October:

The 13th annual autumn weekend workshop of the Petr Brandejs Band and friends was held in Male Svatonovice, Czech Republic, on 12-14 October. There were 90 participants and 12 instructors from the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, and USA. The crowd at the sold-out Saturday 'teachers' show' was more than 250 people. Video footage with Czech commentary, shot for NTv (Nase Televize), can be seen here.

More pictures will soon be on the Petr Brandejs Band website (English version available), where you can now see photos from earlier workshops.

The next PBB workshop will take place in Novy Jicin, CZ on 8-10 February 2008. More info is here.

In July, Petr Brandejs is going to work closely with Dagfinn Pedersen and do a similar workshop in Norway again.

The PBB is almost ready to record their 5th CD again with its original, traditional, English and Czech material.

20 December: Concert for students, Novy Jicin, CZ
