VISITORS to the Slovak Pub in Bratislava know that every Wednesday they can join musicians performing Celtic music in its basement, Keltská pivnica. Every Tuesday they can also hear live traditional Slovak music there.

Now, every Tuesday from 20:00 to 22:00, anyone interested can bring their own instrument and join the Banda band in playing traditional Slovak songs and melodies. Gradually, a list of songs will be produced and available at the bar for those interested in joining the musicians.

Following the idea of traditional Irish pubs, the initiators hope that a regular group of people will meet regularly to play music and learn more about Slovak culture.

The Celtic evenings have been running since November 2002, seeing musicians as well as step dancers from various countries joining in Celtic traditions. Led by the Keltieg band, they start at 18:00 and finish at around 21:00. A list of songs is available at the bar.
