Gypsophilia Kicks off Summer Tour By Train
Published August 19, 2008

The music of Gypsophilia was initially inspired by that of French jazz guitarist Django Reinhardt, but soon found its own distinctive sound through unique original compositions and the melding of the band members' varied backgrounds and influences. While "gypsy jazz" remains a major component of the music, Gypsophilia fuses elements of tango, klezmer, funk, classical music, hard bop and post bop. The band's repertoire ranges from energetic swinging dance music to more sophisticated jazz.

 

Consisting of band members Adam Fine (Bass), Nick Wilkinson (Guitar), Ross Burns (Guitar), Alec Frith (Guitar), Gina Burgess (Violin) and Matt Myer (trumpet), Gypsophilia is launching their summer tour of Ontario and Quebec—and they’re doing it all by train.

 

They will perform for lucky Via travelers, enroute to the first club show at the Black Sheep Inn in Wakefield, Quebec, on August 23, where the group opens for L'il Andy. This is followed by a show a the Mercury Lounge in the Byward Market, Ottawa, the Pepperjack Café in Hamilton, eBar in Guelph and then onto Toronto's Ashkenaz Fetival at Harbourfront. The Train Tour continues at Toronto's Rancho Relaxo, with a final performance at L'escalier,   in Montreal on Friday, September 5.  Gypsophilia is traveling by train for as much of this tour as possible, and will be performing live enroute.
