John Guzek

The Guzek Trio are John Guzek (violin), Jura Holec (double bass) and Joe Evans (accordion). The band are based in Bristol, UK. ‘In the Hills of Manchuria” is a deeply melancholy Russian song about the 1904-5 Russo-Japanese war, revived by dissident artists in the later years of the communist era as an obscure, partially ironic commentary on Russian life but still carrying a potent charge of genuine patriotism, blended with a hefty quantity of characteristically Slavic pathos. John will be performing in a small ensemble alongside Hákarl in the Forever Tent.
