Jan Martinek, Lukáš Martinek & Jan Martinek Jr. /CZ/
Jan Martinek belongs to the very absolute legends of the Czech bluesrock guitar and his son Lukáš is among their biggest contemporary stars. Jan is inseparably connected with Žlutý pes which he co-founded in the second half of the 70s and he is still faithful to it in spite of the long pause when we used to see him on TV screens in a suit as a TV editor. His son Lukáš was a guitar ´prodigy´ as early as at the end of his puberty – at that time similarly to Jonny Lang or Kenny Wayne Shepherd. Today he leads his own band Private Earthquake, he also plays in other projects and he has worked his way up as a respected studio soundman and producer too. However, not many people know that there is one more ´musical Martinek´: Lukáš´s older brother Jan Jr. Although he makes a living as a journalist, for all his life he has been intensely devoted to music (mostly to harder one) as a drummer. The family session on the Šumperk stage will be a unique opportunity to hear all three Martineks together.
