Cigány Weaver returns to Melbourne this March to play at Bar Open with support from local band Belly Savalas, ahead of their appearances at The River Folk Festival!
Fusing the passion of gypsy music, the precision of classical, and the spontaneity of jazz, Cigány Weaver create a rich and vibrant atmosphere for both the heart and mind. Front woman, Jo Davie's soaring vocals and enchanting gentle demeanour combine with the fiery violin, dynamic guitars and driving rhythm section to create a purely acoustic group that effortlessly navigates the musical nexus between intimacy and raucousness. 2019 delivered the release of the band’s debut eponymous album received with great acclaim and played on ABC, Triple J, Double J, and community radio stations across Australia. It is as likely to find Cigány Weaver packing out shows at renowned festivals such as Woodford Folk Festival (QLD), Caloundra Music Festival (QLD) and Dark Mofo (TAS), as it is to find them playing a secret gig in a jazz bar. By drawing inspiration from the past, the sextet's signature compositions and arrangements weave a musical tapestry, contributing a new direction to the Australian music scene.
