GYPSOPHILIA at The Old Confidence Lodge (Riverport) - Sat Oct 29 2016 at 9:00 pm
The Halifax septet is one of the leading purveyors of the string-driven music of gypsy guitarist Django Reinhardt. Featuring guitarists Ross Burns, Alec Frith and Nick Wilkinson, along with violinist Gina Burgess and bassist Adam Fine, the band has more than enough firepower to recreate the intricate melodies of Reinhardt and his gypsy compatriots. Trumpeter Matt Myer and multi-instrumentalist Sageev Oore broaden the band’s scope, allowing it to stretch into areas that reference tango, klezmer, hard bop and even funk. It’s a heady mix, and the band has continued to explore new areas on its four albums. The winner of multiple East Coast Music Awards, Gypsophilia is a popular live attraction, known for its high-energy shows that are spiced with instrumental virtuosity and humour.
