Biography

Gypsy Guerrilla Band is centered around the core of a husband and wife duo, Jim and Joyce Lillquist. Other members have come and gone, contributing variously to live and recorded music, but Jim & Joyce have remained the only constant. Jim built his first hammered dulcimer in 1979 and began playing music with Bill Rintz and the Allen Street String Band in Springfield, Illinois. The Allen Street String Band played the Silver Dollar City’s Music Festival for several years fostering Jim’s love of faires & festivals. Joyce began playing the autoharp in 1983 as a method of participating in her husband’s passion for music. In 1985 she quit her “day job” and joined Jim as a full-time musician. As “Pick ‘n’ Hammer” they auditioned, successfully, for the King Richard’s Faire in Kenosha, Wisconsin. Soon, Jim was invited to join some others in a touring, stilt-dancing troupe that performed primarily at Renaissance Festivals. In 1985 Joyce rejoined Jim and others and the Gypsy Guerrilla Band was born.
