Three musical evenings with twenty performers headed up by the Sašo Avsenik‘s ensemble!
Not to be missed fabulous tourist trips, the educational Avsenik museum and a series of small experiences given special attention to Gorenjska region attracting many visitors who enjoyed listening to the well-known sounds of our charming music.
The fourth Avsenik Festival was more than impressive especially for international guests including Austria, Switzerland and Germany.
Due to popular demand- we are already taking bookings for our three day festival in Begunje a year in advance!
Also this time, the festival started with the international day. The enthusiastic audience was surprised by the performance of Stefanie Hertel. She started with her new hit and continued with two Avsenik songs together with Saso Avsenik‘s Ensemble.
Such a night to remember, the Saturday concert which was dedicated to the legendary Vilko Ovsenik, the spiritual leader of the Avsenik Brothers Ensemble. Each song was accompanied by a standing ovation. A great surprise was when on stage appeared the grandchildren of Slavko and Brigita Avsenik. Brother and Sister Sašo and Monika and their cousin Blaž Avsenik – the third generation of Avsenik musician.
Gregor Avsenik is also festival program manager. His greatest responsibility is to keep the memory of our giants of folk music – Vilko and Slavko Avsenik, as well as the members of their ensemble. With carefully selected songs supported by visual messages on the festival stage, making sure all the performers are shining in their best light. The high-quality performance kept the audience in a great mood for four hours!
So it was at the closing concert when the big day of Avsenik music ended with the Slovenian day. The perfect day was themed with the beauty of the unique Slovenian landscape and its amazing people while taking in the unforgettable performances of excellent Slovenian musicians and ensembles! Memories to last forever!
