Welcome to the wonderful world of The Royal High Jinx. We write, play &
sing music inspired by European traditions, shaded with gypsy jazz, Klezmer
and a pinch of classical virtuosity.
We formed The Royal High Jinx along with our good friends Jen Hawley and
Terry Cole in Melbourne, Australia in 2014. For as long as we can remember,
our experience of music has been associated with family, community and
sharing. From many nights jamming at festivals around the world, to playing
around the kitchen table with our family and friends, we have been lucky to
have a lot of great wisdom and joy passed down to us in these sessions. The
reason for passing these tunes on is to inspire others to share in the fun also.
We have been heavily influenced by (and love) music from The Balkans,
Russia and Romania, as well as Klezmer and Gypsy Jazz. As well as keeping
with some of those traditions, we wanted to write tunes that were interesting
to listen and dance to, yet fun and challenging to play.
The tunes in this book are transcriptions of our original instrumental works
which feature in our live shows and on our recordings
Your Place Or Mine? (2014) & Wheel Of Poor Choices (2017)
