Mentés Másként

We are delighted to welcome the return of Mentés Másként, the brilliant traditional Hungarian Folk Trio, from Cambridge’s twin city Szeged. Blending a mixture of dance and folksong, they bring authentic Hungarian music to life – performing on the traditional koboz (short-necked lute), flutes, percussion and with electrifying vocals.

They are visiting Cambridge at the end of October and will perform at four venues on successive days:

  • St Mark’s Church, Newnham 27 October, 4pm
  • St Catharine’s College chapel 28 October, 6pm
  • Wolfson College (Lee Hall) 29 October, 1.30pm
  • St Andrew’s Church, Chesterton, with supporting act Mnatobi (Georgian singers)   30 October, 2pm

 

All the Concerts are free, with retiring collections.

The tour of Mentés Másként Ensemble in England is sponsored by the National Cultural Fund of Hungary, with thanks to St Catharine’s College, Wolfson College, Mátyás Seiber Trust and Cambridge Szeged Society.
