We are just starting to come out of one of the strangest times that any of us will possibly ever face with the Covid 19 pandemic. Ged Brockie of GMI talks with up and coming guitar maestro Honza Kourimsky about being a musician in these lock down days.
Honza Kourimsky in action leading one of his many bands
Most people agree that it is a hard life being a musician. Doing something you love for at times not a lot of money. Add on to that the fact that music scenes are witnessing a contraction in places to play live music and a general public's view in many cases that somehow "music should be free" makes it even tougher; and then we added Covid-19 to the pot!!!
Honza Kourimsky is an exciting and in demand young guitarist who has been active in creating several bands and opportunities for musicians in his currently adopted land of residence Scotland. Ged Brockie talks with Honza about the opportunities he's created and asks how the lock down has affected his work and the work of those around them in terms of the bands and live performance opportunities.
