Petr Brandejs Band Workshop, 16-18 October 2009

Petr Brandejs, along with the local organizer Jindra Hylmar and thirteen other top Czech instrumental and vocal teachers, spent a very pleasant weekend on 16-18 October 2009 with 116 students on all bluegrass instruments. The event took place in Male Svatonovice, 160 km north-east from Prague, and among the highlights there was the Saturday concert with all the instructors for the crowd of about 300 listeners, and Sunday 120+ bluegrass musicians' effort to play all together three common songs.

Another Petr Brandejs Band workshop in the Czech Republic is scheduled for the end of February in Novy Jicin, and the next one in 2010 in Male Svatonovice.
