“The music is magic in their hands.”  Sean Rafferty BBC Radio 3

10 years: 2009-2019

The BCO were established by British composer and violinist, Christian Garrick, and led by him they play a blistering barrage of traditional folk and gypsy-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.

The Budapest Café Orchestra have won legions of fans through their magical and infectious performances. Evoking vivid images of Tzigane fiddle maestros, Budapest café life and gypsy campfires, plus a few surprises along the way. Hugely entertaining, with immense skill and profound musicianship, a show by the BCO is good enough to make you want to book that holiday down the Danube!

A small but impeccably formed orchestra of just four players, the BCO combines violin, guitar, accordion, double bass, saz & balalaika creating an aural alchemy normally only characteristic of far bigger ensembles. Featuring Christian Garrick (violin), Eddie Hession (accordion), Kelly Cantlon (double bass), Adian Zolotuhin (guitar, saz, balalaika, domra.)

“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…”  The Times
