The Budapest Cafe Orchestra

Loading Events

An Eclectic group who play in amazing places; a 4-piece acoustically electrifying orchestra playing gypsy & folk-flavoured music from all around the world; the BCO deliver traditional Balkan, Russian, Hungarian and Romanian traditional gypsy and folk music in their own fresh and surprising way with jazz nuances and their own unique arrangements and established by award-winning British composer, violinist and teacher Christian Garrick in 2009.

BCO are specialists of the ‘distilled concerto’: e.g. the Rachmaninov, Tchaikovsky and Greig Squeezebox Concertos and admired for their artful re-workings of masterpieces by the greats of the Romantic era. BCO has made a special bond with Scotlandia performing some 200 shows across the Highlands and Islands in touring extensively each year there since 2011 all crowned with the 2014 album The Gaelic Chronicles.

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

‘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
