Tonight was another glorious evening of music at Acapela Studio as Gypsyfingers brought the full band to the best chapel in Wales.
Gypsyfingers aka Luke Oldfield (Vocals, Electric & Acoustic Guitars) and his wife Victoria (Vocals, Piano, Acoustic Guitar & French Horn) are augmented tonight by Pat Kenneally (Drums & Keyboard), Simon Hedges (Bass) and Tali Trow (Acoustic Guitar), 6 String Bass, Upright Bass & Piano) for their first ever Welsh gig. And there can be no better venue than the acoustically brilliant Acapela Studio.
The Duo have just released their new album, Stranger Things, the follow up to 2014’s Circus Life, which came like a Pandora’s Box of delights are they experimented with a multitude of styles and sound to produce an eclectic , heady mix. Featuring Victoria’s classical influences, Luke’s folk and rock background, add in a dash of hip hop and electronica and you still won’t come close to the delights that album holds.
As is regular at Acapela, tonight the band had two 45 minute sets to delve into their two albums and pluck out the jewels.
The band take to the stage and Luke & Victoria put on their horse and rabbit masks as featured on the cover artwork of Stranger Things. First two songs up are from the new album, opening with the instrumental Sophie’s Dream and Half World.
