Christian Garrick and his Budapest Café Orchestra


Traditional folk and gypsy-flavoured music from across the world

Traditional folk and gypsy-flavoured music from across the world. Christian Garrick and his Budapest Café Orchestra perform at Norden Farm Centre for the Arts on Thursday 15 November at 8pm. Tickets are £16 (£14 Supporters).

The Budapest Café Orchestra were established in 2009 by British composer, violinist and band leader, Christian Garrick. Raucous, toe-tapping Balkan and Russian numbers are combined with jazz and swing inflections. Klezmer, Romanian Doinas and Hungarian Czardas are awarded fresh treatments before they give way to a disarmingly beautiful arsenal of ballads. The diverse repertoire often even strays over into the technicolour territory of many a well-loved film or television score.

Last year saw the release of the band’s eighth album Fifty Shades of Goulash. They have also recorded two extended suites. The Trolls Suite is a tone poem based on the troll myths of the Nordic countries inspired by the 2010 film Trollhunter. Their sixth album The Gaelic Chronicles (2014) celebrated the particular affinity with their adopted spiritual homeland: the Scottish Highlands and Islands. The band tours the remotest and loveliest parts of Scotlandia annually and have collected an enviable array of old Gaelic songs in the course of these visits.

The band’s line-up includes Christian Garrick (violin, darabuka), Eddie Hession (button accordion), Adrian Zolotuhin (guitar, saz, balalaika, domra), and Kelly Cantlon (double bass).

Christian Garrick first played with frequent collaborators and employers, the British jazz royals, Dame Cleo Laine and Sir John Dankworth aged ten. He has shared the stage with world-renowned artists like Wynton Marsalis, Nigel Kennedy, Dolly Parton, Duffy, Caro Emerald and Van Morrison. He is a professor of jazz violin studies at the Royal Academy, Royal College and Guildhall School of Music in London. Television audiences will also have heard him as the solo violin-voice of the BBC drama Poldark.

Join us for an evening of fiery folk and gypsy-flavoured music from around the world.
