Invitation: Rudy Linka: A One Man Show - New York Edition

The Consulate General of the Czech Republic in New York is pleased to present A One Man Show by Rudy Linka. Please join us for the extravagant performance of Rudy Linka on his guitar, where we will reflect on the year 2023... not just musically. The event will take place in the Bohemian National Hall, New York City, on November 29th at 7:30 p.m.

Rudy Linka, born in 1960 Prague, Czechia, is a world-famous guitarist, composer/arranger/producer. Rudy began playing music on the violin at the age of five and switched to guitar nine years later. He moved to Sweden in 1980 where he continued his studies of both classical and jazz guitar and composition. In 1985 he was awarded the Jim Hall fellowship to study at Berklee College of Music in Boston and in 1986 he was awarded a stipendium at The New School in New York City. Rudy studied with three of the most legendary guitarists in the field: Jim Hall, John Abercrombie and John Scofield. After decades of studies he was finding his own voice that today signifies the music of Rudy Linka.

Rudy is hosting his own weekly radio show on Czech Radio – "Přímá linka" and his own TV-show "Linka" on Czech Television. Rudy is the founder and the Artistic Director of the international music festival Bohemia JazzFest that takes place every July for two weeks in several cities in Czechia. The event attracts over 90 000 attendees every summer. Rudy is a MESA/Boogie and Thomastik-Infeld endorsed artist.

The event is organized by the Consulate General of the Czech Republic in New York with support of the ČSOB Bank, member of the KBC Group. Tickets are free but the capacity is limited. Please register on EventBrite.
