Honza Macák among his 'children'


Thanks to Lilly Pavlak for a further photo of Czech bluegrass pioneer Honza Macák, who died yesterday. The picture above, taken at a recent Banjo Jamboree (the festival that he founded) shows a traditional feature of the Jamboree: a group performance by all the assembled banjo-players present at the festival. Honza Macák, in his straw hat, can be seen right of centre in the second row from the front, behind the picker in the 'USA' T-shirt. Click on the picture for a larger image.
