Join House of Ukraine for a special afternoon with Ukrainian Kobzar-Lirnyk, Vasyl Nechepa. Kobzar Nechepa is currently on tour in the United States, performing for various communities across the country. Mr. Nechepa is a trophy winner of the “Voice of Ukraine Festival 2001” and featured soloist of the Chernigiv Philharmonic. However, for the last 34 years Vasyl Nechepa has been performing as a Kobzar-Lirnyk. He also travels from village to village and collects old folksongs and ballads, some of which he uses in his programs. He accompanies himself on the Lira and Kobza, authentic replicas of antique, uniquely Ukrainian stringed instruments handmade by master craftsmen. Truly not an event to miss.

Admission is free, but donations are appreciated to cover Mr. Vasyl Nechepa’s travel costs.

Thanks to our friends from Balboa Park for announcing this event too!
