DESCRIPTION:

As fantastically exciting as they are musically impressive, their infectious energy will sweep you off your feet and stay in your heart forever.

Christian Garrick and the intrepid Budapest Café Orchestra celebrate  their 10th  consecutive annual tour of wondrous Scotlandia.

When this band plays, a blistering barrage of traditional folk and gypsy-flavoured music from across the Balkans and Russia gives way to Klezmer laments, Romanian Doinas, Hungarian Czadas and the band’s own re-imaginings of tunes by the romantic greats including squeezebox concertos by Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninoff.  Evoking vivid images of Tzigane fiddle maestros, Budapest café life and gypsy campfires, this band is hugely entertaining, has immense skill and profound musicianship…enough to make you want to book that holiday down the Danube!

“Not so much a band name as a whole genre of its own, Budapest Café Orchestra embraces an encyclopaedia of music and mischief.”  Scotsman
