SAŠO AVSENIK

“I am a great admirer of the music of Avsenik and am therefore very thrilled to be able to bring joy to young and old with our group. Someday we might even tour the world.”

I am 26 years old and am currently living in Begunje in the region of Gorenjska. I am the eldest of five children. Music has always been present in my life, largely thanks to my grandfather Slavko and my father Grega. Being from a village there was and is an ever-present homey feel here, mostly because of our Jožovčova inn. I suppose that is why I love spending time amongst people and why I like to entertain them.

 

My first memory of the accordion was when I was a four year old boy listening to my grandfather Slavko play his accordion. At the age of eight I began with accordion lessons at my grandmother Brigita’s music school. After finishing music school in Radovljica I then formed my own band and graduated from tourism vocational school in Radovljica. In 2009 we recorded our first album and went on to perform in the show named Musikantenstadl. This was also the start of our professional career as musicians in Slovenia as well as abroad. Alongside the accordion I also play the drums and bass. Since I do not have much time to spare I like to spend it with my girlfriend and with my family. I also enjoy every moment I get to spend in nature and time playing sports.

 

I am a great admirer of the music of Avsenik and am therefore very thrilled to be able to bring joy to young and old with our group. Someday we might even tour the world.
