BUDAPEST CAFÉ ORCHESTRA - Pulteneytown Peoples Project (PPP) MAY 15, 2017
13th May 2017
*** Booking is essential to avoid disappointment ***.
Back by extremely popular demand so much we have had to put on an extra concert in a bigger venue!
The Budapest Cafe Orchestra were established in 2009 by British composer, violinist and band leader, Christian Garrick. 2017 sees the band enter its eighth busy and exciting year and also, coincidentally, the release of their eighth album, Fifty Shades Of Goulash. With their traditional folk and gypsy-flavoured music from across the world. Raucous, toe-tapping Balkan and Russian numbers are combined with jazz and swing inflections; Klezmer, Romanian Doinas and Hungarian Czardas are awarded fresh treatments before they give way to a disarmingly beautiful arsenal of ballads such as the Schindler's List theme or Andy Statman's bitter sweet The Flatbush Waltz. The involvingly diverse repertoire often even strays over into the technicolour territory of many a well-loved film or television score.
The BCO have chalked up some 120 concerts across Scotland since 2011. This year they embark on their seventh annual consecutive tour beginning in Peebles in May and ending at Johnshaven in September. This is a not to be missed concert and be sure to book as soon as you know you can come.
"Back by popular demand, the fiery vivacity and awe-inspiring musicianship of the finest purveyors of Eastern European gypsy music this side of a Lada scrap heap will leave you with a grin on your face and rhythm in your feet..." - Times
