Top Pick: Finally Alone showcases Czech and Slovak folk

Slovak and Czech folk musicians will have the opportunity to perform live for studio audiences and radio in a series of concerts beginning October 6. Entitled Finally Alone, the performances feature musicians who have temporarily left their bands to play solo acoustic sets.
Each evening's performance will host two individual musicians, the majority of whom are already well-known, but also including a few rising stars. All performances will take place in the cosy confines of Studio #2 at Slovenský Rozhlas (Slovak Radio), the Bratislava building which resembles an upside-down pyramid. The studio can hold a maximum audience of 200 spectators, with even the worst seat in the house a mere 20 metres from the stage.
