“Daisy Castro has a musical and a daring style of playing that belies her young years." Tim Kliphuis
Daisy Castro, whose charming presence on the violin became known during Djangofest 2010, will be guest violinist this year with the talented young French guitarist Antoine Boyer and his father guitarist Sebastien Boyer. They will perform together Saturday night. (Please also see the Boyers’ bio on the musicians page)
Daisy Castro, started playing violin at the age of 6. The same year that she started playing, she took a trip to France , 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. Daisy is also a member of the genre defying band, “The Infidel Castros”, who released their debut CD, “Strange Enchanted”, in 2010. She contributes cello, and harmony vocals, as well as violin on the album. For more information on Daisy and her music, please visit:
