During This Time of Trouble a.k.a. Love in the Time of Covid-19

Here is hoping we all can manage to stay healthy. In any case, now that I have a little more time on my hands, the plan here is to keep everyone as up to date as possible about where I’ll be (or won’t be). Like just about every musician on earth, most of my public shows have been canceled, including the March northeast tour, the Northshore Traditional Music series back in Louisiana, Tipitina’s shows, Balfa Week, and Jazzfest. Other shows, such as the French Quarter Festival, have been postponed till October (and even that may be optimistic, to many of us). There are still shows for March and May listed on the calendar.  Rest assured, ANY DATE THAT IS LISTED WILL STAY UP UNTIL I GET THE WORD THAT IT IS CANCELED, AND NOT BEFORE.

In the coming weeks, there will be plans to set up an online show or two. There will be Facebook events for those. Also, if you would like to purchase a CD or download card, the Albums page has been updated to give everyone the opportunity to get a CD directly from me. You can do that now through my PayPal address, Ginafsyth@aol.com. I understand that my gmail address can get you there, too.

I have some updating to do…

Recently, I have received reminders that new dates need to be added to this website. Here are a few reminders, just in case…

Later this month, I will be teaching Cajun fiddle at Augusta Heritage Center, Augusta Heritage Centerin Elkins, WV, then playing the Nachitoches Folk Festival with Bruce Daigrepont; then, I’ll be playing an extended weekend with The Mid-City Aces, including the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival; after this, I’ll be rounding out the summer, solo, at the Fox Valley Folk Festival, in Geneva, IL. Also, look for upcoming fall concerts with the Malvinas!

News and New Shows

In the past month or two, there were a few technical glitches that put a damper on posting updated show dates. Now, they are happily resolved, and a few new dates are now up!

Gina Forsyth Spring Tour

It’s been a busy spring, complete with tour dates. In February, Gina returned to New Orleans, and played dates in Louisiana and Colorado with the Malvinas. In March, Gina did a jaunt in the Midwest, playing house concerts in Wisconsin and Iowa–along with the Second Sunday series in Michigan. The Spring Tour continues with three shows at the French Quarter Festival–Saturday, 4/14 with the Sweet Olive String Band and Bruce Daigrepont, and Sunday, 4/15 with the Mid-City Aces. Later in April, she will revisit the Midwest, for two shows in Illinois: the first will be Friday, 4/20 (no pun intended), in Elgin, IL; the second will be 4/21, in Lombard, IL (in the western burbs of Chicago)–after which she returns to Louisiana to teach Cajun fiddle at Dewey Balfa Cajun and Creole Heritage Week. The Spring Tour 2018 concludes with shows in Pennsylvania and Ohio. Be sure to click the Shows link for more information.
