Roby Lakatos Ensemble
Friday, January 27, 2012 8:00PM
Mixing the fire of Hungarian-gypsy music with classical technique and a gift for improvisation, violinist Roby Lakatos is that rare musician who defies definition. A seventh generation fiddler, Lakatos’ mastery and musicianship have earned him the title "The Devil’s Fiddler" and "The King of Gypsy Violin." Lakatos blends the wild rhythms of his gypsy roots with scorching virtuosity and an extraordinary stylistic versatility to take audiences on a careening musical thrill ride. Expect to leave with your heart racing!
