Celtic Connections (2) – Fanfara Ciocarlia

Posted by Jackie on January 27, 2008

On Thursday we went to my must-not-miss-at-any-cost concert – to the Old Fruitmarket to see Romanian gypsy band Fanfara Ciocarlia. I saw them last year when I was living in Romania, and it was one of the best concerts I’d ever been to, so when I saw they were coming to Glasgow I was really happy! They didn’t disappoint – it was a brilliant concert. They were advertised here on the posters under the name “Fanfare Ciocarlia” which made me laugh – quite why people thought the English speakers would struggle with “Fanfara” so they anglicised it but then did nothing about “Ciocarlia” which is much more complicated seems a bit ridiculous to me!

  1. You’ll probably find the change was not intentional, but might well have been a ‘spell check’ problem at the printer who was producing the poster. Still doesn’t excuse the final typo.

    Good inside photographs.
