Budapest Café Orchestra (music) Wed 1st Sept, 7.30pm
Wednesday, September 1, 2021, 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm
Led by Christian Garrick, the BCO play a blistering barrage of traditional folk flavoured music from across the Balkans and Russia, Klezmer laments, Romanian Doinas, Hungarian Czadas and their own unique re-imaginings of some of the biggest tunes ever written by the classical greats. With just four players, the BCO combines violin, guitar, accordion, double bass, saz & balalaika to dazzling effect. Christian Garrick is one of the world’s most celebrated jazz violinists and has played with the likes of Cleo Laine & John Dankworth, Wynton Marsalis and Nigel Kennedy.
