The Sea Gypsy Orchestra

 

A lady-powered pirate-gypsy-circus band made up of 4 travelling maidens playing accordions, melodicas, guitar, keyboard, flute and ukulele. Jamming on original songs, pirate anthems, swinging rhythms & gypsy jazz tunes with theatrics and circus arts to ice the cake.

 

Originating from dusty forest jams at The Woodford Folk Festival in 2013, they have since toured the East Coast of Australia, as well as France and Italy. Hoist the sails, hit the deck and prepare to fling your frilly knickers overboard! They are Danidoo Butterfly (AUS), Rosie MissChief (AUS), Stephe Accordeon (FR), & Whiskey Bliss (USA).
