Folk Band Brings Sounds of Eastern Europe to Worcester

Back to news listings

The New Budapest Café Orchestra will be performing live at the University of Worcester next month.

The Orchestra plays powerful, driving folk-based music from Eastern Europe, inspired by the music of European gypsies. The music evokes vivid images of fiddle maestros, Budapest café life and gypsy campfires.

The band will make sure everyone finds their inner gypsy with opportunities to join in with songs and there are plenty of foot stomping numbers to get you dancing too. It doesn’t matter if you’re not up to speed with gypsy music because they’ll also throw in a few tunes which you are sure to recognise from popular film and television.

The event is organised by Shindig, Worcestershire’s programme of professional live arts in community venues, and takes place on Thursday, February 2 from 7.30pm in the University’s Conference Centre at the St John’s Campus.

Tickets cost £8 for adults, £6 for concessions (under 14, OAP, students) and £24 for a family (2 adults and 2 children). They can be purchased from the University’s finance office (01905 855000) or from St John’s Public Library (01905 822722).

The show will last approx two hours with a break. Doors open at 7pm.
