Halifax-based Gypsophilia is a group of six performers playing original high-energy jazz that is by turns angular, sweet, nostalgic, modern and raucous. In recent years Gypsophilia has become a formidable touring outfit, regularly crisscrossing the continent and playing to sold-out crowds all over Canada and the US. Their high-energy live shows and danceable, genrebending sound have made them an audience favourite at major festivals and small clubs alike. With a combination of serious musicianship, humour and showmanship they are capable of enchanting a sit-down crowd one moment, and whipping people into a dancing, clapping, singing frenzy the next.

2015 saw the release of Night Swimming, their fourth fulllength album. This recording is a hauntingly beautiful ninesong masterpiece that showcases a darker, cinematic side of Gypsophilia alongside their signature ebullient swinging sound.

The four-time ECMA winning band features Gina Burgess on violin, Nick Wilkinson on guitar, Sageev Oore on piano, accordion and keys, Alec Frith and Ross Burns on guitar and percussion, Matt Myer on trumpet and organ and Adam Fine on double bass. Members of Gypsophilia have performed with the likes of Symphony Nova Scotia, Kanye West and more.

We welcome Gysophilia back to Medicine Hat for their second appearance at JazzFest!
