November 20 – Gypsy Jayne
Gypsy Jayne is a soulful singer somewhat reminiscent of artists such as Janis Joplin, Doris Day, Grace Slick, Melanie, and many more. Her intense rhythmic guitar style was honed playing folk in Colorado, jazz standards in Texas, and blues in the deep south of Alabama.
Along the way, she developed an honest and humorous writing style that covers everything from personal loss and social injustice to love and life as a pirate. With her formidably talented bandmates, Gypsy Jayne brings folks together in a glorious celebration of music, art and life.
