Waterford’s finest return to the Cathedral for an evening of fantastic gypsy style jazz infused with touches that are all their own. Gypsi Swing (Formerly Waterford Gypsy Jazz Ensemble) are a 5-piece group who combine guitars, violin and double bass to create an infectious groove. They have also added vocals and snare drum/percussion to their dynamic set. Their sound is based on various musical styles encapsulated by Django Reinhardt’s Jazz Manouche.
Gypsi Swing are going from strength to strength and are playing an increasing amount of events in Ireland and further afield The group have played a number of national festivals and events this year including; The National Ploughing Championships with Lyric FM, Ardmore Pattern Festival, Bloom in the Pheonix Park, Waterford Harvest Festival and Spraoi. Their latest cd launch in the Theatre Royal in October 2012 was a great success. Gypsi Swing’s versatile repertoire is encapsulated by the musicians’ own interpretative style, and includes arrangements of popular tunes together with some of their own original compositions. This concert promises to take you on a musical journey with a twist, one you won’t want to miss.
