We are GypsyDuo…

Looking for one act to cover all styles, starting with quiet background music and ending with everyone on the dancefloor? Thought only a DJ could do it but prefer live music? We are Gypsy, so named for our nomadic style of drifting with ease from one music genre to another. The lead vocals of songs vary between male and female in a number of languages, or flute, saxophone and guitar. Some are acoustic, others accompanied by backing tracks created by Catherine with real instruments to give that ‘big band’ feel.

Meet GypsyDuo…

Gypsy comprises of Paul and Catherine Slingsby, both with a lifetime of experience in music. Their chemistry together in performance is infectious, drawing people in to enjoy the range of music they explore.

Paul Slingsby

Paul Slingsby

Paul comes from a family of performing musicians, originally playing as the lead guitarist of a rock band on the Gold Coast. He ventured into blues and folk music with his brother, recording a number of original tracks together. Paul is also the inventor of the SnakePick, a new guitar plectrum now sold around the world. As a performer, Paul combines his rich, warm vocals with guitar and percussion to bring depth and life to each song.

Catherine Slingsby

Catherine Slingsby

Catherine’s classical background (flute, piano and ballet) opened into ventures in music and dance from Africa, the Middle East, Europe and Latin America. After teaching Latin dance for 5 years she then joined a Latin band for a further 6, adding saxophone and guiro to her instruments. She began MCing events and was flown to international venues, such as resorts in Vanuatu. Catherine creates each backing track for Gypsy, instrument by instrument and is now also working on an original album.
