Lemon Bucket Orkestra's (LBO) repertoire and inspiration comes from a myriad of folk traditions across Eastern Europe. The increasingly dynamic and theatrical group have created song cycle inspired by a century old Slavic prison ballad that tells the story of a young rebel coming home after laying it all on the line. Their work draws emotional weight from the band’s personal experiences with the Ukraine-Russia conflict, but it also highlights the dozen strong ensemble’s party-punk roots and attitude, developed and honed since their formative days busking on the streets of Toronto. “We start in a musty train car overlooking the fields and valleys of our youth through permanently smudged windows, reflecting on the life that once was and wondering how we can face our mothers, with the horrifying fact that we will never be the beloved boys or girls we once were,” says Lemon Bucket Orkestra ringleader, Mark Marczyk. “Then, with a sudden jolt we are transported to the memory of what led us to this moment and we’re sprinting for dear life in a struggle to keep ahead of our past selves. It is a navigation between the shaky train car and a series of flashbacks – in the language of eastern European folklore – the main site of resistance and celebration for the LBO for more than a decade.”
