Nov 18:     Gypsy & Balkan Campfire Jam Session and Ceilidh

                     St Pauls Church Centre, Marylebone, London NW1

                     The LGO was joined by many other musicians to play tunes for this lively

                     ceilidh, with Balkan and eastern dances led by Ljiljana Grkinic.  Many

                     members of Maspindzeli, the London Georgian Choir, were also present

                     and sang us some of their striking harmony pieces.  

 

 

 

Sept 22:     Eltham College

                     Eltham, south-east London

                     A very enjoyable concert in the college's excellent theatre - this performance

                     for 'Eltham College Society' (senior pupils and staff of the college) was received

                     with enormous enthusiasm, many of the students being new to Eastern

                     European and Gypsy music.

                     Dragon Hall, Covent Garden, Central London

June 18:    BBC Three Counties Radio - Rokker Radio show

               2005

 

 

Dec 6:        RelayNET fundraising event at The Yacht Club 

                    Victoria Embankment, Central London

                    This took place on a boat moored on the Thames - the novelties of the setting

                    included some ceilings too low to fit the double bass, and playing whilst the

                    boat gently rocked to the changing tides...

 

 

 

Dec 4:        Highbury Roundhouse

                    Highbury, North London

                    Our first formal concert, for invited friends and acquaintances, followed by

                    lively socialising and dancing.  Photos in the Gallery - see right for link.

 

 

 

Dec 3:        Chatsworth Market Festival

                    Hackney, East London

                    This, our first public performance, was a very promising start indeed -  

                    despite the bitter cold of this outdoor festival in the depths of winter, we soon

                    drew a large, enthusiastic and dancing crowd from the surrounding streets.

 

 

 

Nov 13:     Gypsy Campfire Jam, Le Quecumbar

                    Battersea, South London

                    An informal jam session led by Gundula Gruen and the LGO.

 

 

January:   The LGO is formed, and the rehearsing begins!
