Anyone familiar with the Czech music scene, will probably at some point heard of the blues band Krausberry, led by frontman Martin Kraus.

Today’s programme is dedicated solely to a group that has now been playing together for more than 30 years. Krausberry. The group's singer, Martin Kraus, is now in his early 60s that in itself seems unbelievable.

If you’ve ever seen the singer on stage at Prague's Malostranská beseda, you’ll know that’s somehow just plain wrong. But Kraus' inimitable growly vocals and sense of humour have lost none of their edge and Krausberry is a band which is still going strong.
