All Welcome

Gina Forsyth is an award-winning singer/songwriter, who is well known for her wizardry on fiddle and guitar. With an alto as unique as it is soulful, unpretentious songs that cut straight to the heart, and a wicked sense of humor, her solo live performances are legend. Considered one of the best Cajun fiddlers in Louisiana (no small feat), Gina is in demand from other great Louisiana musicians to play club gigs and festivals.
Her awards are piled on earlier awards: Emerging Songwriter Winner  Napa Valley Music Festival; Peoples Choice Winner Folk  Offbeat Magazine, New Orleans; Best Singer/Songwriter  Offbeat Magazine, New Orleans; New Folk Finalist  Rocky Mountain Folks Festival; Emerging Artist  Falcon Ridge Folk Festival (2015).
Ginas other festival and club performances include New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, Folk Alliance International, Rocky Mountain Folks Festival, Kerrville Folk Festival, Tipitinas, The Living Room, and Rockwood Music Hall.
On Ginas 2012 CD, Promised Land (Waterbug), the title song reached #1 on the Folk DJ list in January 2012 and the CD ended the month at #3. It also made the final voting round of 50 in NARAS  the Grammys -- to determine the nominees for Best Folk Album for the 55th Annual Grammy Awards.
Promised Land is an album no folk music lover should pass up. Well-written tunes, crisp production and instrumentation framing a message of reminiscences form a performer who does it as well as it can be done. --  John McClure of Victory Music
