As the Hot Club of San Francisco tours send Isabelle traveling across the country in April, Jeff will be performing with his Blues Band at Armando's (4/18) and with Jack Pollard at the Casbah cafe (4/28).
She was born in France. He was born in San Francisco. She listened to Piaf, Montant, 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.
