Local music in Trieste, Ljubljana, Istria region of Croatia

We are about to head out on a trip to the northern Adriatic. Yeah, I know. Bummer, eh? I think we have most of the highlights covered, but I'm having trouble finding local music. We would love to go to bars or restaurants in Trieste and Ljubljana where there is live music, preferable local folk music. In Istria, we will be in Buje and Rovijn for couple nights each, as well. Please let us know about the cool places we could go. Also, if there are some must-sees of any type in these cities, we would welcome the suggestions!

In Ljubljana you may not need to visit a bar. When we were there, Mahala Rai Banda--or some band that looked and played Balkan brass remarkably like them--marched through the riverside cafe seating in the old pedestrianized area of the old city. They stopped in a crowded area and played for about 30 minutes before continuing to move down the river to another location. It was magical. Our dinner server let us know it happens all the time. And eating al fresco along the river there is a must-see anyway.
