Truman's Ridge Loses Bass Player

PRESCRIPTION BLUEGRASS IMAGE - Karel WaskaIllinois' loss will be the Czech Republic's gain when Karel Waska who has been playing bass for Truman's Ridge for the last year returns home.

Karel has completed his doctoral work and will be returning to the Czech Republic on December 21, 2013.  The band says they will miss him and his exciting brand of bluegrass,  but his family is thrilled about his return. 

A farewell concert for Karel will be held on Thursday, December 19th at the HOUSE CAFÉ in DeKalb, IL. An after-concert jam session is also planned so that many of Karel's U.S. friends will get one last chance to pick with him before his departure.

Greg Heintz is returning as bass player for Truman's Ridge.  Greg played with  the band during the 2012 season, and they are excited to have him back.  Greg is a music performance major at NIU and is also an accomplished jazz and classical bassist.
