BUDAPEST RAGTIME ORCHESTRA (HUNGARY)

Artist Bio

Formed in 1980 by students of the Franz Liszt Conservatory, the Budapest Ragtime Orchestra have maintained the classical tradition in a sense, mixing in with the band’s polished Dixieland versions of the popular classics, but played in the parody style of Spike Jones. This very popular band, great favourites in the UK, has made several earlier appearances at the Birmingham festival and its annual total of about 100 gigs has included tours and festivals in Germany, the United States, Poland, Switzerland and Italy.
