The Gypsy Pickers perform at the Brigand Cafe to celebrate St Patricks Day. Plenty of lively banjo, mandolin and foot stomping for this one! Excellent music, dancing, guest musicians and open mic. Everyone welcome!

The South Island's touring legends, the Gypsy Pickers. This powerful multi-instrument, songwriting 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 accomplished 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 live and studio albums, receiving TV and radio airplay for their original songs. They've toured extensively in New Zealand, Australia and the USA.
