Gina Forsyth is a singer/songwriter, violinist, and guitarist from New Orleans. She possesses a soulful alto and songs that cut straight to the heart--unpretentious, and well-crafted, and profound. Gina’s third solo CD, Copper Rooster and Other Tunes and Tales, on Waterbug Records, features her prodigious fiddle chops. In the last 18 months, Gina has released two new full-length CDs and an EP. Her return to Cajun roots, Mid-City Aces, is part of a trio with 18-year-old Cameron Dupuy on accordion and his father, Michael Dupuy, on guitar. Her 2015 release, The Fiddle EP, is a precursor to the new CD of fiddle tunes.
Gina’s 2012 release on Waterbug, Promised Land, was top ten on the Folk DJ List in 2012; the title cut was the #1 song for January 2012. In 2015, Gina was one of 24 Emerging Artists at the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival, then voted one of three Most Wanted to return to Falcon Ridge in 2016. She is also 1/3 of the Malvinas; their new CD, God Bless the Grass, is set for release this spring on Soona Songs.
