Concert: Lemon Bucket Orkestra

September 14 @ 9:00 pm - 10:30 pm

Canada’s Lemon Bucket Orkestra will perform a free show at Memorial Union Terrace as part of the 2018 Madison World Music Festival. The band takes the traditional, brass-centric sounds of Balkan folk music and fuses it into a roaring, celebratory, and endlessly danceable anthems. The dozen-plus ensemble has generated an impressive amount of buzz since its origins as a modest street performing quartet, amassing a devoted fan base drawn to their idiosyncratic style and raucous live shows. Furthermore, the group earned the title of Toronto’s best band of 2015 in a reader’s choice poll conducted by the popular local magazine Now.

The band will also host a free dance workshop in the Festival Room (lower level of Memorial Union) at 6pm.

Swedish band Hoven Droven will open the event starting at 6:45 pm.

Please note that this is not a CREECA-sponsored event.
