Gypsy Music by CZARDAS
One Night Only
Czardas (pronounced: zar darsh) play a panoply of gypsy music from
Russia and Hungary, a touch of klezmer, a bit of Balkan and the
occasional venture into flamenco. Czardas also play original material
inspired by Eastern European music.

Their music is romantic, full of passion and pathos. They add to their
concerts, a sprinkle of gypsy swing revealing the lighter whimsical side
gypsy music.
Czardas are Marjorie Gadd on violin, Steve Gadd on Guitar and bazouki,
and Erin Collins on vocals.

Marjorie is a professional string teacher and co-director of The
Tasmanian Heritage String Ensemble. Steve is a composer, folklorist and
collector and is known nationally for his playing in Shake Sugaree and
for his solo performances. Erin has taught singing, in particular folk
songs and rhythm, to upper primary students for the past 12 years.
