Roby Lakatos EnsembleTo say that music is in Roby Lakatos’ blood would not be far off the mark. Lakatos comes from a long line of Hungarian folk performers and has held a violin in his hands since age nine. Equally skilled in classical and jazz techniques, Lakatos’s music explores these genres while remaining firmly grounded in his ethnic heritage and tradition.
Gunter Theatre at the Peace Center, 300 S Main St, Greenville. Tues, Apr 29, 7:30pm. $45. (864) 467-3000, peacecenter.org
