When I Take Off My Shoes (Až si jednou sundám boty)

Lyrics: Robert Krestan, Translation: Ruth Ellen Gruber

When you tell me to stop
And then when I take my shoes off
When the smile of the rails
Tells me jump, now, my friend

When my hand becomes hard
As a tile of terracotta
When I sit by my door
Just don´t ask to what end.

When the dust from my roads
Cleans the scars etched in my forehead
When I learn about things
That are best not to know

When the last of my rhymes
Become idle in my song book
It may well be too late,
The last time, maybe so.

Then when the wind and the rain
Wash the traces from Golgotha
When the smoke from the pyres
In the end fades away

When I take off my belt
And then when I take my shoes off
Nothing´s left for me, now
And for you, now, who´s to say.

Druha Trava - Shuttle To Bethlehem

Druha Trava is a wonderfully individual band from the Czech Republic that is hard to describe.

They perform new acoustic world music with bluegrass influences. You might hear them perform a bluegrass tune, Bob Dylan tune or one by another American or British artist, or one of their many originals.

Though they basically use a typical bluegrass complement of instruments, you might see the banjo player also pick up a clarinet or Irish whistle. This along with the versatility of the dobro player helps create much of their unique sound. The Bluegrass Association of the Czech Republic declared Druha Trava "Group of the Year" in both 2005 and 2006.
