Rosta Capek – Luthier

Rosta is a luthier who has built first-class mandolins and banjos since 1985

We are privileged to be visited by Rosta Capek, a renowned luthier. He sets up shop at the festival, where you can try and buy outstanding banjos and mandolins, buy accessories like capos, picks, and straps, or have your instrument set up or repaired professionally.

Over the years, many in the Norwegian bluegrass family have gotten themselves a Capek instrument, and international artists like Ricky SkaggsPeter RowanRadim Zenkl, and Ned Luberecki use his instruments professionally.

If there is anything special you would like to have done with your instrument, inquire in advance at so he can bring the necessary tools and materials.
