Offspring Gypsies consists of five musicians dedicated to exploring the collaborative possibilities of improvised music. Drawing on a wealth of collective musical experience, each player brings both well-honed musical skill and an energetic sense of adventure to the improvised explorations created by the band. Together they generate interesting, and interestingly challenging sounds, the source of which, if the stars align, is ‘the moment’, ‘the now’ – improvisation as a practice, not a product.
Ash Hall (trumpet) hails from Armidale, and has been performing for a long time both around the New England and afar, leaning towards Jazz/blues/abstraction and beyond, he can swing like mad or whisper a ballad. Exciting but lyrical, with his search for freedom, Ash loves taking the audience with him on his musical journey!”
Steve Harris (drums) has been playing the drums for over forty years, in many musical combinations, across a great many musical styles, and in many places. He brings to the Offspring Gypsies a deep interest in exploring both the possibilities of his instrument and the vast possibilities of musical expression.
