The South Island's touring legends, the Gypsy Pickers. This powerful multi-instrument duo never fail to get the energy moving! Dynamic acoustic maestros of rock, reggae, bluegrass, gypsy, Celtic, popular, Pacifica, jazz, blues and roots. Their hot musicianship, tight rhythms, engaging stage presence and a vast repertoire, ensure their wide appeal amongst those who've had the sheer enjoyment of seeing them live.

In this world of programmed music there aren't many acts who can dance a crowd of hundreds of people with just two acoustic guitars - but this duo is one of them. Their show is part join-in novelty, part magical songs for the soul and part high energy, crowd rocking jams, with jaw-dropping lead work from front man Ron Valente and held together with a tangible chemistry by crafty female guitarist and front woman Lindy Valente. The duo have a mutual attraction for raucous fun, as they pull out the banjo, mandolin and melodica, and proceed to wow the audience with their musical wizardry.

The Gypsy Pickers have released nine original live and studio albums, receiving extensive airplay. They've toured in New Zealand, Australia and the USA.

Catch them at the Brigand Cafe in Takaka on Mardi Gras Night.
