Austin Czech Historical Association Dinner-Chris & Edita




We were so pleased to see that Chris Rybak was performing at the Austin Czechs dinner. He is Sarah's favorite Czech musician...she has many of his CD's. Ed, Sarah and I met Chris and his beautiful wife, Edita, on an Alaska Polka Cruise in May 2007. They are not only very gifted performers, but the sweetest people you will ever meet. They have a very busy schedule. You can see their schedule on Chris' website:

Would you like to learn Czech culture, the language and the music? Czech out Edita's new website:

We have purchased a storage unit filled with slovak clothing. all the boxes are labeled and we were wondering where we could find out more information on the items. most boxes are labeled "Ladies - Kroj from Tichy Potok - East Slovakia - made in 1989 from pieces from 19th - 20th century. If you could be a help my e-mail is jtm10@cox.net we are in Rhode Island, USA. Thank you for your time, John McCann

John,
How exciting! Sounds like a treasure chest. However, I'm no authority on Czech costumes. I just enjoy sharing the little knowledge my daughter, Sarah, and I learned since she became the national Czech Slovak queen in 2006. If you were nearby I would love to look over the costumes and see if I could be of help to you. However, I don't know if you've read the most recent post but I lost my husband in October and am now on a limited income so such a trip would not be possible. But, if would would like to send photos I have several people in our Czech club who may be able to share their insight as well. Good luck and please let me know if there is anything I can do. God bless.
