The Budapest Café Orchestra

‘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

Led by jazz violin superstar Christian Garrick, the Budapest Café Orchestra play traditional folk and gypsy music from across the Balkans and Russia, Klezmer, Romanian Doinas, Hungarian Czadas, and beautiful ballads such as the theme to Schindler’s List and Andy Statman’s beautiful Flatbush Waltz. Evoking vivid images of Tzigane fiddle maestros, Budapest café life, and gypsy camp-fires – with a few surprises along the way – it’s good enough to make you want to book a holiday along the Danube!

A small but impeccably formed orchestra of just four players, the Budapest Café Orchestra combines violin, guitar, accordion, double bass, saz, and balalaika creating an awesome aural alchemy, normally characteristic of far larger ensembles. Featuring Chris Garrick (violin), Eddie Hession (accordion), Kelly Cantlon (double bass) and Adrian Zolotuhin (guitar, saz, balalaika, domra).

‘Their performances are among the most fulfilling live entertainment spectacles you are ever likely to find of any genre’BBC Celtic Connections
