Vardos trio by Melisa Savickas7pm doors, 8pm show

Driven by violinist Alana, chased by Kirri (double bass) and Sofia (accordion), Vardos play folk and Romany music learnt from Roma (Gypsy) musicians during their Eastern European travels. Formed late last century, Vardos have played in every state of Australia, toured to Europe, Britain, New Zealand, New Caledonia and the U.S. and appeared in film and television.

‘With stagecraft that is equal parts formation dancing, martial arts and Keystone Cops, the violin-accordion-double bass trio play with formidable panache, spinning the tunes into a dizzying procession of crescendos and false stops. Vardos don´t hold back. They give the tumbling, compound-time dances and slow airs- so sad they can´t bring themselves to sing the words- both barrels and not a few of Hunt´s bow hairs.’ **** Rob Adams, The Herald, Edinburgh
