Alex Burkoy (Henry the Violinist)

Ever since arriving in Australia from Ukraine in 2000, Alex has been constantly evolving his instrumental skills and applying them to various projects and bands predominantly based in Melbourne. Contributing violins, guitars, bass and other string instruments to many performances, recordings and teaching programs he has travelled extensively around Australia, Canada, Western Europe and beyond. Most often spotted as the multi-instrumentalist in the acclaimed indie-folk band Tinpan Orange, he joins the show with just one violin in hand, but plenty of improvisational versatility and Eastern European flare.
