Fundraising Evening for Ukraine

Bolton Castle, Leyburn, DL8 4ET United Kingdom

Julia and Katya are both accomplished musicians from Ukraine and we are delighted to host them for an evening concert at

Two musicians from the Ukraine will give a special performance at Bolton Castle near Leyburn to raise funds for Ukraine charities. Julia Kogut-Kalynyuk and Kateryna Trachuk are classically trained professional musicians from Lviv, who form the duo Dvi Doli.  Julia and Kateryna play the Badura, a beautiful string instrument played in traditional folk music across the Ukraine. They arrived in the UK, via Poland, in just May.

This performance takes place at atmospheric Bolton Castle from 6.30pm on Monday 27 June with tickets costing £15 per person. All proceeds will go to Ukraine charities.  Their repertoire includes classical Ukrainian folk songs and jazz accompanied by the bandura and voice. The bandura is Ukraine’s unique national folk instrument with 65 strings which combines elements of the zither and lute and has 17 more strings than the classical harp. Julia and Kateryna have been playing the bandura since they were 5 and 9 years old. They obtained Masters degrees in bandura and voice from the renowned Mykola Lysenko Lviv National Music Academy, Ukraine’s leading musical conservatory.
