The Czech bluegrass band Druhá tráva has just released a new album Telč. One part of the album captures the band’s concert at a summer festival in the town of Telč last year, the other – coming out in a limited edition – contains songs Druhá Tráva’s recorded live with their friends and collaborators including Peter Rowan and Charlie McCoy. We discuss the new album, the band’s presence on the US bluegrass scene, and more with Druhá Tráva’s co-founder and banjo player Luboš Malina and American expert on eastern European bluegrass music, and friend of the band, Ruth Ellen Gruber.
