We are delighted to have Waterford Jazz Ensemble, Gypsi Swing coming to this year’s Pattern Festival. This lively, six-piece band will entertain the crowds in the Festival Square just after midday on Sunday, 29th July.
Gypsi Swing comprises six very talented musicians, who combine acoustic guitars, violin and double bass to create an infectious groove. Their up-tempo and dynamic sound is based on various musical styles encapsulated by the “gypsy-sound”, inspired by Django Reinhardt’s “Jazz Manouche” style with a modern twist.
Gypsi Swing are going from strength to strength and are playing an increasing amount of events nationwide. The group are playing a number of festivals all through the summer, including the Ardmore Pattern Festival.
The band recently wowed the crowds at the Bloom Festival in the Phoenix Park, where they played to thousands of enthusiastic spectators in the Lyric FM Garden. They were originally scheduled to play a lunchtime slot but, such was the response from the Phoenix Park audience, that they were called back to do a second, full performance. This led to a slot on legendary radio presenter, Lorcan Murray’s show on Lyric FM.
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. The group will give you a musical journey with a twist and one you won’t want to miss. So remember to catch Gypsi Swing live in Ardmore on Sunday, 29th July - not to be missed!
