Budapest Café Orchestra
7.30pm-10pm, Doors open 7pm.
The refreshingly unconventional and snappily attired Budapest Café Orchestra (BCO) make their debut at Stirling Castle! With 14 albums to their name the Budapest Café Orchestra was established in 2009 by British composer and violinist, Christian Garrick, and led by him have won legions of fans with their magical performances. A small but impeccably formed ensemble of just four players, the BCO combines violin, guitar, accordion, double bass, saz & balalaika to dazzling effect. Hugely entertaining, immense skill and profound musicianship, get ready for an amazing show!
