Druha Trava is definitely planning on touring the US this fall in September and possibly early October. In the coming months tour dates will be posted as contracts are received. During the past year the band has been performing with percussionist David Landstof, who has a jazz background and also performs with Lenka Dusilova and in an Irish band with Lubos Malina and Katka Garcia.
They hope to bring him along on the tour. Watch this website for tour dates for this coming fall.

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.
