Bellebird & The Handsome Gypsies

Bio

Bellebird began as a female acoustic duo formed in the deep south of New Zealand in 2007. The combination of Anna Van Riel and Jo Little’s solo talents created an eclectic and unique style of bluegrass music to entertain the masses. With beautiful vocal harmonies woven over a range of instrumental accompaniments, including guitar, bass, ukulele, flute, harmonica and kazoo, the duo perform an assortment of original and covered songs.

Since Bellebird’s formation in 2007 these southern songstress’s have made regular appearances on Invercargill’s CUE TV as well as preforming in various venues throughout Southland and Otago, opening touring artists such as Karen Hunter, Tim Guy, Paul McClaney, Age Prior and Luke Hurley.

At the end of 2008 the duo became a quartet with JR Richardson on Bass & Vocals and Michael Bradford on Mandolin & Accordion altogether Bellebird & The Handsome Gypsies. The quartet just completed a summer tour playing 34 venues in two months with raving reviews.

They have received the following testimonial:

“Beautiful voices and lovely harmonies.” - Georgina Ormond, LOOP Recordings Aotearoa.

“Possesses an amazing voice, bouncing effortlessly between Deborah Wai Kapohe and Alanis Morissette.” - Nigel Benson, Otago Daily Times.

“The Belle Birds have played at the Black Dog Bar over the last year and have been a delight to have. Their mix of bluegrass, folk and contemporary rock has been a hit and we have heard nothing but positive feedback. Beautiful voices and a great rapport with the audience! We are looking forward to having them back next year to perform for us again.” – Carol Manager of ‘The Black Dog’ – Fiordland Cinema, Te Anau.
