JJ Rocks Article # 228: From Czech Republic: Poitin

This is what its all about. Musicians carrying on a tradition that they believe in combined original recipes of musical exploration and precise craftsmanship. Thats music for the planet. Thats Poitin.

Expressing themselves in a Celtic sonic tapestry, Poitin from Pilsen, Plzen, Bohemia Czech Republic not only emphasizes an old world style of music, but they also deliver it with tonal qualities that are far beyond most who venture into this genre. I havent heard this kind of expertise in acoustic freedom and historical adventurism since Gentle Giant. And when you add in the fact that they also are very strong lyrical barroom story tellers, its obvious that Poitin has found the perfect formula that mixes incredible musicianship with timeless themes.

Please be proud with me to welcome this incredible band and its members Machácheck on fiddle (founder member and chief beard sucker); Jakub Siegl on guitars; Jan Brabets on bouzouki, banjo, tin whistle, backing vocals, Jeremy Marc King on lead vocals, bodhran; Sasha Shantorova on flute and whistles, and Dick Savage on Didgeridoo, spoons, egg, and backing vocals. Now thats quite a combination. I can only dream that they would visit us here on St. Croix. They would be a huge hit!
