From French Cafe music to the French Quarter

She was born in France. He was born in San Francisco. She listened to Piaf, Montand, and Trenet. He listened to Louis Armstrong and Muddy Waters. She is Isabelle Fontaine He is Jeff Magidson. Together they are known as Duo Gadjo. Their music celebrates the union of two cultures, largely inspired by the sounds of the 20's and 30's, when jazz was the thing     and Paris was the place to be.   They accompany themselves on guitars, revisiting the American songbook Gypsy style. They also pay tribute to the music of New Orleans featuring Jeff on slide guitar and Isabelle on Washboard. They perform as a duo, trio (add upright bass,) or a quartet (add violin, or accordeon). Jeff and Isabelle are members of the band The Hot Club Of San Francisco.

 

Rent or purchase the new Duo Gadjo Live video!

 

In June 2016 our entire performance at Armando's was captured on video by Ken Fisch. It's all there, the joy, the heart-ache, the french stuff, the blues, and whatever that weird looking instrument is that Jeff blows into.

The video is available for rent or purchase here.
