The Balkanics on Friday 6th March 2020
Six-piece Lancastrian band The Balkanics formed for an impromptu gig in 2007 and enjoyed it so much they’ve been playing ever since.
They draw upon a wide range of musical influences that reflect the band members’ diverse backgrounds which range from pub sessions and ceilidhs to orchestral music. Their focus upon instrumental music encompasses elements of the various musical traditions of the British Isles, and looks beyond with Klezmer and Balkan tunes sitting alongside Breton, French-Canadian and original pieces.
With a repertoire that is as eclectic as it is energetic, The Balkanics deliver an exciting mixture of traditional and original tunes in a style that is all their own. Fiddles, guitar, bouzouki, cello, whistle, flute and percussion combine in The Balkanics’ pan-European melting pot to produce a rich sound that never fails to delight.
'Whatever the context, indoors or outdoors, they excel at creating an infectious enthusiasm for their diverse musical influences, always resulting in people of all ages dancing like crazy.' Matt Fenton, Theatre Director & Programmer
