17th Bluegrass Workshop at Malé Svatoňovice, 12-14 Aug. 2012

Thanks to Petr Brandejs for this news from the Czech Republic:

The 17th Bluegrass Workshop of Jindra Hylmar and Petr Brandejs took place on 12-14 August 2012 in Malé Svatoňovice. Everything went smoothly: 120 students, eleven teachers [above], Saturday night sold-out concert of Bluegrass Cwrkot and teachers (the two-and-a-half-hour-long video can be seen here), learning, jamming, having fun... Present were world-class banjo maker Jaroslav Průcha and Honza Fišer who makes guitars.

The usual Sunday afternoon farewell 'brutal jam' of all involved, playing three songs together, also took place [above]. For a very nice photo gallery, visit here.
