The Gypsy Hicks featuring Elise Witt

The Gypsy Hicks (Mick Kinney, Evan Kinney, Kirk McAlpin, Moses Nelligan) play 1930s swing in the style of the Hot Club of Paris, made famous by legendary guitarist Django Reinhart. With violin, accordion, banjo and guitars, the Gypsy Hicks recreate the sound of French bistros and cabarets where this blend of musette, gitane and “le jazz hot” originated. True to their name, the trio sifts in a dash of roots americana such as ragtime, blues, and novelty songs.
