About G String Orchestra
G String Orchestra, a traditional and inspired Eastern European/Klezmer instrumental trio of violin, accordion and double bass began in the spring of 2006 as the g string quartet. Over the years, the band has been known as a duo of violin and accordion, to a ten piece orchestra with brass, percussion and piano to boot. Though based in New Orleans, their love of music, bicycles and travel have brought them all over the world including the Balkans, collecting an array of tunes and stories and have even attended folk music seminars in countries including Hungary, Romania and Greece. With differing backgrounds, musical knowledge and experiences, each additional member has added their own influences and flair, giving the band flavors of blues, Americana, punk and New Orleans Jazz. Alongside the hypnotic makams of Asia Minor, the beating wail of the Klezmer hora or the bouncing reverie of the Romanian Musica Lautareasca, the resulting music is music to make you dance, music to make you cry. Music that gives you space to think and reflect, or lose yourself in the harmonies.
