"Inspirational people are the engines of life and give me the courage to pursue my dreams" -- says world citizen Rudy Linka, who himself has become an inspiring person. In 2020, he celebrated his 60th birthday and Euromedia published his autobiographical book "On the Way Home - Always", which became a bestseller in just 2 months.

One Man Show Between the Lines is based on Rudy's book. With his music and stories, Rudy guides the audience through his world with ease and humor, introducing them to the people who inspired him and will surely inspire the audience as well.

About the artist
Rudy Linka, born in 1960 Prague, Czechia, is a world-famous guitarist, composer/arranger/producer. Rudy began playing music on the violin at the age of five and switched to guitar nine years later.
He moved to Sweden in 1980 where he continued his studies of both classical and jazz guitar and composition. In 1985 he was awarded the Jim Hall fellowship to study at Berklee College of Music in Boston and in 1986 he was awarded a stipendium at The New School in New York City. Rudy studied with three of the most legendary guitarists in the field: Jim Hall, John Abercrombie and John Scofield. After decades of studies he was finding his own voice that today signifies the music of Rudy Linka.

Rudy is hosting his own weekly radio show on Czech Radio – "Přímá linka" and his own TV-show "Linka" on Czech Television.

Rudy is the founder and the Artistic Director of the international music festival Bohemia JazzFest that takes place every July for two weeks in several cities in Czechia. The event attracts over 90 000 attendees every summer. Rudy is a MESA/Boogie and Thomastik-Infeld endorsed artist.
