Druha Trava ("Second Grass" in Czech) is a bluegrass band from the Czech Republic, that formed in 1991 by Robert Krestan.

They, along with much of Central Europe were inspired by Pete Seeger's tour there in 1982. Along with Krestan (lead vocals, guitar), Druha Trava consists of Lubos Malina (banjo), Jiri Mesner (bass), Martin Ledvina (guitar), and Lubos Novotny (dobro).

Druha Trava are commonly compared to their bluegrass and folk forerunners such as Ricky Skaggs, Peter Rowan, Davy Spillane, and Béla Fleck as well. The band recently signed to Compass Records. On Compass they released their sixth studio album, Czechmate, and an album with Peter Rowan, New Freedom Bell.
