RAW: Cabaret Fringe – Galonka and Tzigane – Nexus – 4K

Tzigane eased us into the evening with a short yet varied set, prior to the energetic whimsy of the main act for the evening, Galonka. With the later, it was all a lot of fun, with jokey banter amongst the members between, and even during, songs, but there were also beautiful melodies played on violin and clarinet to the soulful backing of guitar, mandolin, contrabass and piano accordion. 4K

This year there is also a string of shows which have a very international and multi-cultural flavour to them.

The Cabaret Fringe Festival – the lesser known cousin of the international Cabaret Festival – high-kicked off to a grand start at The Prom on 1 June 2011.
