Looking for shows: Balkan/Klezmer/Gypsy/Romanian power folk duo from Budapest,HU
Posted November 18th, 2012 - 11:04 am by from Budapest, Hungary (Permalink)

We are skogen! We are a Balkan/Klezmer/Gypsy/Romanian power folk duo. We play violin, accordion, drums, sing and dance. We are living in Budapest, Hungary but are from Michigan and Sweden. But our american violinist has been away from America for 2 years and wants to make a home tour. Attached is our calendar.

Here is the basic itinerary (but check out the calendar)
Michigan- January 10
Head to New York
Head south
New orleans for Mardi Gras! Feb 15
Return to Midwest March 1
Chicago March 15

We are looking for all types of shows. We want money to pay for the flight and travel costs (of course). So big shows, weddings, universities, events with budgets our really really nice. But… We also mainly just want to play as much as possible. So we want house shows, small bars, tree forts, Igloos. We can play for entrance fee, donation, pass the hat, or "favors." We have just made our new cd today, you can here some of the songs on our sound cloud, Check us on Facebook or help us build a amazing beautiful website. If you check back in december we will have a music video up!
We can get you some flier/poster images if you want them as well. Depending on the setting we could give a short dance class for Transylvanian dance or we could give a talk about the development and current context of folk music in the carpathian region.
