Czech Bluegrass Song Workshop
Czech and Slovak School of North Carolina, 4405 Hope Valley Rd, Durham, North Carolina 27707
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.
Free and open to the public, donations accepted. CDs, DVDs, and other band materials will be available for sale.
We are excited to partner with the Czech and Slovak School of North Carolina for this event, as their efforts to support and enrich the lives of people who identify with Czech and Slovak culture.
