Gig at the Greenhouses – Balladeste

Balladeste will take you to new heights with their beautiful sounds. A collaboration between Preetha Narayanan (Violin) and Tara Franks (cello), Balladeste explore the versatility and sound potential of just two string instruments.

With traces of contemporary minimalism, Indian classical and folk, the duo creates original compositions that are vibrant and experimental yet melodic and filmic in quality – songs without words with a contemporary alt-folk twist.  Have a listen here

“Dazzling musicianship and transportive melodies. An utter privilege to have them on the show”  The Nest Collective – Resonance FM

Gig at the Greenhouses – Tsvey Kipperim

The Tsvey Kipperim, Daniel Gouly and Josh Middleton, are two members of Don Kipper – a multi award-winning ensemble playing a wide range of traditional musical forms reflecting the cultural diversity of North East London.

Separated from the shoal, these two breakaway Kippers delve deeply into the Neshama (spirit) of Jewish music. In their performances they take an audience on an odyssey through Eastern Europe, touching on many of the traditions which have influenced East European Jewish Music, such as Romani Music, and rural folk traditions from around the Balkans and the Mediterranean. From Greece to Moldova via a synagogue in Kiev they move with wit, joy, and sadness in equal measure. Through the intimate interplay between accordion and the clarinet, these two musicians explore the potentials that a deep working relationship, a shared love for the tradition, and a profound friendship can create.

Daniel Gouly has been described as a ‘stand out’ musician in the London scene according the Evening Standard and his soloing has been described as ‘transcendental’ by Songlines, while The Financial Times has claimed Josh Middleton ‘has played with every Klezmer musician in London.’ After some deliberation, the Tsvey Kipperim have decided that actually that’s probably true.

Gates open 6pm to give an opportunity to see the gardens and get food and drink.  Tsvey Kipperim’s first set will be at 6.30pm to 7.15pm. Interval 7.15pm to 7.45pm. Second set 7.45pm to about 8.30pm.

SOLD OUT Gig at the Greenhouses – Faith I Branko

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!

Read more about Faith and Branko’s  romantic story here and have a pre-listen and look here.

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.
