Jožka Černý is a singer who sings melodies passed down from generation to generation. He has sold over a million records. Some of his songs have become legendary - Za tú horú, za vysoké, When I went from Hradiště .... In addition to having sung hundreds of songs with his dulcimer band, he has a huge repertoire of brass band hits.

On Thursday, 23 March, the folk legend Jožka Černý will perform in the Bethlehem Chapel, the ceremonial hall of the Czech Technical University in Prague, as part of the Bethlehem Discussion programme.

Jožka and his dulcimer band will come from Moravia to this unique space in the centre of Prague to delight their fans not only with a song, but also with a new book written by Karel Vágner. These two legends of our music scene have come together in the book, which is a personal look back at their long friendship and the successful professional career of Jožka Černý, and also records the memories of Jožka's long-time collaborators and friends.

"I am really looking forward to the baptism. I wrote the book with love. We are lifelong friends. Even though I'm eight days younger and I have to go get him beer on every tour, I really like him a lot," said Karel Vágner.

The book will be christened by the popular actor Jaroslav Satoranský and guests can buy it on the spot. Both gentlemen, Jožka Černý and Karel Vágner, will be happy to sign it.

The event starts on 23 March at 7.30 pm. A glass of nice Moravian wine will be prepared to welcome the guests.
