The G String Orchestra plays traditional and original eastern European folk and klezmer music and is based out of New Orleans, LA. GSO is currently an instrumental trio consisting of violin, accordion, and double bass playing pan-Balkan music ranging from romantic waltzes to driving coceks, pulsing horas to foot moving
bulgars, heart wrenching greek rembetica ballads to the hungarian czardas!
As true to the spirit of the music, the G String Orchestra has traveled far and wide in an array of diverse modes of transport as colorful as the tunes themselves. From cars to buses, trains to planes, boats to bikes, beaches to snow capped mountain tops, the instruments have lead their way as they collect songs wherever they go, personalizing them with their own unique sound and bringing them back home. Their diverse and extensive instrumental repertoire will have you dancing, laughing or lost in reverie. Come the colder months, you can often find them in New Orleans playing the gambit of bars, listening rooms, cafes, restaurants and even busking on the streets when the weathers nice (and even when it's not!).
