“The finest purveyors of Eastern European gypsy music this side of a Lada scrap heap.”
The Budapest Café Orchestra is a music-driven phenomenon and specialist performance entertainment outfit, certified to enthral audiences everywhere.
They are hard to describe and as fantastically exciting as they are musically impressive. With their immense skill and profound musicianship, they have won acclaim from fans, fellow musicians and critics alike, for their electrifying and entertaining shows.
The Budapest Café Orchestra share as many blood cells with the fine folk of Hungary, as the Penguin Café Orchestra share with the web footed fellows of Antarctica.
The BCO evokes vivid images of Tzigane fiddle maestros, Budapest café life and gypsy campfires—plus a few surprises along the way.
Comprising four fabulous players of violins, guitar, accordion, double bass, saz & balalaika the BCO boasts some of the country’s most revered international stars: Eddie Hession is a supreme accordion champion of Great Britain; Chris Garrick is one of Europe’s most celebrated jazz violinists, Adrian Zolotuhin, is a master of strummed strings and veteran bass player Kelly Cantlon has been in the business of laying down low notes for many, many moons.
