Friday 11th June: Buffo’s Wake (folk and klezmer band)

Instrumental folk and Klezmer tunes from Russia, Eastern-Europe, the Balkans and beyond, featuring cimbalom, accordion, violin, double bass and guitar.

Brighton based Buffo’s Wake are usually more known for their high-energy original songs, but having teamed up with acclaimed cimbalom player Janos Kallai they are excited to present this concert (and recorded CD) of instrumental world-folk.

A whistle-stop tour of music from the Balkans, Eastern Europe, Russia and beyond, performed with the band’s usual frenetic energy, you will hear influences from classical music, klezmer musical traditions and gypsy-jazz manouche inspired guitar lines, performed with virtuosity on cimbalom, violin, accordion, double bass and guitar.
