Mandolin Mondays #254 w/ Special Guest Jan Bíba

Rate this Entry
Jan Bíba, mandolinist of the Czech bluegrass band Sunny Side, joins us this week on Mandolin Mondays for a tune of his called "One Horse Town" played on his 1993 Gibson A-5L (with a special easter egg appearance of a 2000 Fender FM60E five-string hollow-body Mandocaster at the end).



Jan is the tenor and mandolinist with Sunny Side--a Czech band that plays an authentic interpretation of traditional bluegrass from the 40s and 50s. The band started in August 1997 and has since released several CDs. Sunny Side plays at music festivals, in music halls, and clubs throughout the Czech Republic and also in Europe. They also are the Four-time Winner of the Audience Popularity Award at the European Bluegrass Association EWOB Festival.

And as always, tune in next week for more Mandolin Mondays! Until then...

Happy Picking!
David

    Big right hand and a bit of Monroe in there. Very nice, Jan. Whoa, almost missed that electric bit. Love it!

    The Czechs are a fun bunch. They say they are all musicians. There are several conservatories in Prague.
