The Company House
One of the city's favourite jazz bands, dance machines, and masquerade ball hosts, the seven-piece Gypsophilia returns to the Halifax Jazz Festival for one of its signature high-energy, musically astonishing, dynamic and good-hearted performances. Still riding the high of last year's release Night Swimming, which Exclaim called "a group of impressive musicians unafraid to show their mature side, as the album's nine tracks demonstrate an impressive range of moods, modes and techniques," Gypsophilia has spent the past year taking its music to the world. Bring your dancing shoes, your clapping hands, your joyful voices and, of course, your wide-open ears.
