Toronto/Halifax folk ensemble Kitchen Orkestra returns to Ottawa, joined by The Backsliders, for a night of lively tunes and storytelling at LIVE on Elgin!
Come delight in Kitchen Orkestra’s sonic scrumptiousness; this band serves up spicy balkan tunes, cookin’ celtic stompers, and fresh original music with ease. Their unique combination of fiddle, vocals, mandolin, upright bass, and percussion delight audiences to danceable expressions of world folk music.
Kitchen Orkestra’s music is stylistically diverse, yet possesses a strong through-line of raw danceability and emotional storytelling. The group’s dynamic range, tasteful and enthused musicians, and unusual instrumental textures create a truly unique musical experience to be enjoyed. Felix Mills, George Chenery, Hayley Ryerson, and Graham Mansfield have been uniting their collective backgrounds of celtic fiddling, bluegrass picking, jazz improvisation, and latin percussion as a band and wish to invite you to their very own version of a kitchen party!
