PORTRAIT is a music band from Czech Republic, and was founded in the 2002. We are non-professional members who are bonded together by our interest in various type of music. All of us have played in other bands and musical activities before we met. Two members of PORTRAIT took part at Kentucky Fried Chicken Bluegrass Music Festival in the 1983 and played in New York and Nashville as well. It was wonderful experience and we have nice memories - when we played at Bill Monroe's birthday party...
The influence of American bluegrass music had a great impact on an evolution of PORTRAIT's musical style and was particularly influenced by Earl Scruggs and Pete Wernick and Don Kissil, musical magazine editor from New Jersey, Krüger Brothers, the band formerly from Switzerland, now they are living in North Caroline, Tony Trischka, banjo player from New York, Danny Weiss, guitar player and singer from the band Skyline... Before 1989 PORTRAIT often played in East Germany.
Todays band members met for the first time in the spring of 2009.
