GYPSY REBEL RABBLE
Gypsy Rebel Rabble are a Dublin based Irish,bluegrass folk band with a reputation for energetic live shows. With over 100 performances under their belts in their first year, this young band is not to be missed. Gypsy Rebel Rabble merge a furious DIY punk song-writing and performance ethic with a smooth vocal style with an emphasis strongly on harmonies. Toward the end of 2011 they released their live album on independent record label "Excellent Guitar Riff Man" Records. They've also released their single 'Norah's Waltz' on a split vinyl with Blind Yackety. So far this year, the band has played The Shannon Winter Music Festival , Vantastival, No Place like Dome, Knockanstockan, Dunmoreast Bluegrass Festival, Jack of Diamonds Rhythmn and Roots, The Dunlaoghaire Ukulele Hooley and Electric Picnic to name just a few.
The Bambir have gathered their childhood appreciation for hard rock and smuggled vinyl, Armenian traditional music and poetry, pulsing beats and whirling trances, ancient tales and pagan wails and pumped it into their own unique sound. “An artist’s job is to search,” Narek says, basing his lyrics in metamorphosis and the imitation of reality or your imperfect idea of it.
