Peter Rowan and Druha Trava Video

This clip is from June 2005, when Peter Rowan toured for a week with Druha Trava. I caught about three concerts on the tour - in Plzen, Brno and Trnava (Slovakia). It was the first time I got to know the members of the band; I ended up interviewing Robert Krestan and Lubos Malina and writing a story that appeared in the International Herald Tribune and the New York Times.
This clip is from the performance in Trnava, at the annual DobroFest -- a celebration of the Dobro, or resonator guitar, held in a town near where  the inventor of the Dobro, John Dopyera (who emigrated to California with his family as a boy) was born. 

I'm posting this to see if I can "embed" the video from YouTube....
