Ondra studied classical violin for 10 years in Orlova (CZ). He found guitar in the age of nine, playing bluegrass since he was 15. He was voted Czech Bluegrass Music Association Guitar Player of the Year in 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010. Since 2004 he´s been attending bluegrass workshops and musical camps as an instructor (see Sidebar). He organizes regular bluegrass workshops at the Banjo Jamboree festival in Caslav (CZ). He also runs a website with bluegrass guitar tabulatures (www.bluegrassguitar.wz.cz).

His former band Kreni (2000-2010) was voted The Best European Band of The Year 2009 at the La Roche sur Foron Bluegrass Festival. He recorded 4 CDs with Kreni and 3 CDs with the Petr Brandejs Band (2004-2010). He´s been playing with the band Fragment since 2006. In 2008 he released an instructional DVD for bluegrass guitar beginners in cooperation with Ralph Schut which will soon be followed with a DVD for advanced players. Besides that, a DVD with guitar solos in Czech bluegrass standards comes out in 2011.

Hiya!

How are you doing? I'm sorry I didn't have enough time for a visit when I was in Slovakia earlier this month. Hope we get to pick again soon!
