See them on our Showtime stage at 11am.
The Orchard Café Quartet was brought together by a love of folk music after the pandemic restrictions begun lifting. They perform existing and original folk tune arrangements from around Europe. Their music is based on a number of Nordic and Scottish folk tune arrangements as well as original compositions. The music is a perfect blend of traditional tunes and classical composition techniques as well as having some space for improvisation. The group has also written some of it’s own arrangements of British tunes as well as a well known sea shanty that became popular on TikTok.
Although newly formed, the musicians have all been playing professionally for many years and also perform in a number of different groups including: The Obligato String Quartet, Devon Philharmonic Orchestra, Gypsy Dreams, The Cellotones and La Vie en Rose.
