Described by The Guardian as ‘musically a delight’ and by BBC Radio 3 as ‘moving, breathtaking and virtuostic’, we are thrilled to have this Serbian-UK ensemble playing our first Gig at the Greenhouses for 2019.
Faith I Branko started a decade ago when accordionist Faith travelled to Serbia as a bandleader with Gifford’s circus. There she met and fell in love with virtuoso violinist Branko with music as their only tool for communication. Together they have been composing and playing ever since.
Their wonderful music will take you on a journey from melancholy Roma violin laments to storming ‘kolos’ and explorations into jazz improvisation, swing, Gypsy Rumba and Turkish and Indian influenced songs. An absolute must see gig!
Join us for a wonderful session of seriously good sounds! Book your tickets below.
Gates open 4.30pm to give an opportunity to see the gardens and get food and drink. Faith I Branko’s first set will be 5pm to 5.45pm. Interval 5.45pm to 6.15pm. Second set 6.15pm to about 7pm.
We put on our Gigs at the Greenhouses to let people hear brilliant music, enjoy our lovely gardens and to raise money so that the community can benefit from BPCG 7 days a week.
