with Special Guests
Bev Barnett & Greg Newlon
We are very excited to bring the internationally aclaimed duo Gypsy Soul to Point Richmond Acoustic on Friday, March 10. Roman and Cillette bring a unique sensibility to pop music, pushing the limits of what can be done with two voices and an instrument.
The duo's multicultural heritage helps inform both their message and sound, attracting audiences with their soulful blend of Roots, Pop, Blues and Jazz. Their wistful story began in Scotland when Roman Morykit (UK) and Cilette Swann (Canada/US) made a promise to each other to make both their living and their lives from their art.
Like its creators, Gypsy Soul's music is much like fine fusion cuisine…..Italian, Irish, South African and Ukrainian to be precise. As with any work of art, their music is born from heartache, struggle, love and determination infused with many textures, nuance and flavors. Their message is both universal and intimate - familiar yet otherworldly.
Over their 19 year career, the pair have had a Top 40 hit with “Silent Tears” and have won numerous songwriting and performance awards including International Acoustic Music Awards, Independent Music Awards, Lilith Fair and others. They've earned over 1.6 million downloads and have sold out numerous theaters including Triple Door and Musical Instrument Museum.
"Gypsy Soul is one of the most brilliantly instrumented and vocally adept bands alive and kicking.” - Orange County Weekly
Special Guests Bev Barnett & Greg Newlon
Opening the show is Bev Barnett and Greg Newlon. Bev and Greg write uplifting songs with heart, spirit and a sense of wonder. With tight vocal harmonies and sound much greater than the sum of its parts, they jump the lines between folk, rock, blues and singer-songwriter soulfulness.
