DAISY CASTRO TO PERFORM AT ONE LONGFELLOW SQUARE
Daisy Castro and Gypsy Moth will be in concert at One Longfellow Square on Friday, April 12th at 8 PM.
Young violinist, Daisy Castro, started playing violin at the age of 6. She started out the usual way, with Suzuki and classical, but quickly learned to play by ear whatever her classical instructors could not teach her. The same year that she started playing, she took a trip to France with her parents, where she was first introduced to Gypsy Jazz. Intrigued as a listener from the start, over the years she has found this beautiful and passionate music to be a perfect fit for her playing style.
She recorded and released her first solo CD, "Gypsy Moth" at the age of 13, and fittingly, it bears a strong Gypsy Jazz influence.
The summer of the release of her recording, she attended Festival Django Reinhardt, in Samois sur Seine, France, and 3 months later, she attended Djangofest NW, in Washington state. In November, she found herself on stage at Birdland Jazz Club in NYC as a guest of the legendary Schmitt family! In September 2011, she returned to Djangofest Northwest as a performer, opening for festival headliner, Mark O'Connor's Hot Swing !
Daisy has had the good fortune to share the stage with so many amazing players, including:
Antoine and Sebastien Boyer, Stephane Wrembel Quartet, Gonzalo Bergara Quartet, Adrien Moignard, Stochelo Rosenberg, Robin Nolan, Howard Alden, Biel Ballester, Sebastien Felix, Dorado, Samson, & Amati Schmitt and more!
