A short video report from European tour with Jeannette and Johnny Williams which took place in Oktober/November 2014. We performed in Germany, Schwitzerland, Denmark and Czech and Slovak Republics. It was an honor for me to be a part of this project. You can find some additional videos on “Video” page of this site.
is my new radio program about Dobro made in cooperation with internet radio Velvet.
It is broadcasted every Thursday at 6. PM CET and the spoken part is in Slovak language.

But the music is international, right?
A few pictures from my stay at RockyGrass Festival in Lyons, Colorado.
Here are a few pictures from workshop at Corte de la Miniera, near Urbino, Italy. The teachers: Russ Barenberg – guitar (USA), Mike Compton – mandolin (USA), Jean-Marie Redon – banjo (France), Henrich Novak – Dobro (Slovakia).
The workshop was held las week of August, the overall atmosphere was great, food was excellent, people amazing and lots of great music.
I have a new instrument at home (yes, I own it) made by a young Czech builder (and an excellent resonator guitar player) Karel Začal (pronounce Zatsal). (www.conerinstruments.cz, www.facebook.com / karelzacal)
Model C11, serial number # 40, material – maple in a elegant dark design. Beautiful, clear and velvety sound – typical of maple resoguitars, well balanced across whole fingerboard – indeed to such an instrument I have long been waiting for! Thank you Karel!
Those of you music lovers who are interested in acoustic music can look forward to the acoustic music workshop in the Italian region of Marche near the picturesque town of Urbino, where is my honor to also teach. The combination of lecturers is more than interesting, I can’t wait!

Beside my Resoland Workshops here are some other ones where I’ll be teaching resonator guitar this year.
First one is at Musique Acoustique in Virton, Belgium next month (www.musiqueacoustique.org). Unfortunately for those who would be interested in my lessons there, the resonator class is already full.
You might visit Norway this summer and enter Risor’s Bluegrass Workshop on July 7.-10.2014 (www.risorbluegrassfestival.no), or if that’s a little too far for you, there is another opportunity this fall – Bluegrass Camp close to Munich, Germany (www.bluegrasscamp.de) in October 10.-13.2014.
