Lee Bidgood & Richard Ciferský, the Banjo Romantika Band
Vimala's Curryblossom Café , 431 W Franklin St Ste 415, , Chapel Hill, North Carolina 27516
Musician and scholar Lee Bidgood started exploring the Czech bluegrass scene while a student at UNC, and while playing mandolin for the Steep Canyon Rangers - now a professor working in the ETSU Bluegrass, Old Time & Country Music Program, he has been working with Slovak banjoist Richard Ciferský for most of a decade to support musical dialogue between two parts of the world that love bluegrass music and the banjo. One of their collaborations is the film Banjo Romantika, in which both are featured performers.
