Pete Seeger - Studio Recording At The National Czech Radio (1964)

This is the second part of the Pete Seeger recordings from Czechoslowaki in 1964. Gene Deitch recorded these tracks on March 28, 1964, in an empty studio at Radio Karlin, Prague.

Many thanks to Ruth Ellen Gruber for sharing this information on

"I just spent the weekend in Czech Republic, participating in the launch of the new bluegrass fusion CD by the Malina Brothers band. It can be said that the great Pete Seeger, who died Monday, launched the entire Czech bluegrass scene with his performances in the then communist Czechoslovakia in 1964. For the first time, people saw a five-string banjo being played, after hearing it on American Forces radio broadcasts. The first Czech five-strings were made from photos of Pete's. The concert was arranged in Prague by Pete's longtime friend Gene Deitch, who recorded the concert and issued it as an album, which has now been posted online."
