Hobo – Blues Band

For almost forty years Földes László (Hobo) has written lyrics, and Egon Póka started setting them to music and playing them on acoustic guitar in their kitchen in Kőbánya, the songs were put together on the spot.
In 1984 the double album was released, and around Christmas, the premiere took place in the Budapest Sports Hall, which János Szikora adapted for the stage. This was followed by successful productions by Attila Vidnyánszky in 2002 and 2007.

Hobo has now embarked on his own tour, performing his own versions, with his current collaborators.

In addition to songs from the old album, there will also be newer songs.

When: Monday, 14 November 2022 at 7:00 p.m.
