Czech folk group Spiritual Kvintet staging farewell concert after 60 years together

The oldest Czech folk group still together, Spiritual Kvintet is staging the last in a series of farewell concerts on Wednesday, at Prague’s Lucerna Palace.

The group, which was founded in 1960, launched a series of 14 concerts at the same venue last spring. But due to the coronavirus pandemic only managed to perform two.

The group will also pay tribute in song to Spiritual Kvintet double bassist Dušan Vančura, who died at the age of 82 last spring.
