Fusing the passion of gypsy music, the precision of classical, and the spontaneity of jazz, Cigány Weaver create a rich and vibrant atmosphere for the soul, 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. 

The release of Cigány Weaver’s debut eponymous album has received great acclaim and airplay. 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. 

Cigány Weaver are Jo Davie (Vocals), Gareth Mewes (Violin), Rory Dollard (Guitar), Conor McDonald (Guitar), Blake Lonie (Double Bass) and Kym Ambrose (Percussion). 

Front woman Jo Davie says “We absolutely cannot wait to play these shows, it’s such a privilege to be able to travel and perform in these difficult times, especially up on the Sunshine Coast where we have played some of our most memorable shows. Audiences can expect our old toe-tapping favorites plus new original compositions that we are really proud to debut!”. 

Cigány Weaver’s Sunshine Coast tour is presented by local performing arts company Red Chair.  Director Angie Dunbavan says “despite the challenges of COVID, and to counter the terrible impact this has had on our performing arts industry, Red Chair is working hard to present an exciting program of live music on the Coast with eight tours of diverse musical ensembles during 2022. 

“We’re delighted to present Cigány Weaver as the first tour of the series. We all need the inspiration and joy of live music now more than ever!”.
