Folkin’ fabulous February (3)

The third folkin’ fabulous concert is coming your way this Thursday. I wonder if we’ll have to stop the concert so we can take photos of the sunset this week?

23 February (Thursday) – Kirsty Bromley and Simon Dumpleton.

“Kirsty Bromley is a singer of songs of social justice, traditional songs and songs from the heart. Her voice is effortless yet stirring, at times ethereal but always earthy and with strong roots. Musical and beguiling.” Nancy Kerr – BBC2 Folk Singer of the Year 2015

Kirsty delighted audiences around New Zealand when she was last here and in February she returns with her musical partner Simon, whose “beautiful piano and accordion playing will not disappoint your ears”. www.kirstybromley.com 7.30pm The Third Eye, Tuatara Temple of Taste, 30 Arthur Street, Te Aro, Wellington. $20 non-members, $15 members and students

Opening acts are a band especially formed for the occasion, Reuben Jelleyman and Friends, and the winner of the Joan Prior Award 2016, Hunter Giltrap.

Folkin’ fabulous February (2)

After a folkin’ fabulous concert with Winter Wilson, harmoniously supported by the Hex Crystals (or was that the Flex Crystals?), folkin’ fabulous February continues with the second of our three February concerts this Thursday.

16 February (Thursday) – Rachel Dawick (in association with the Plimmerton Boating Club). If you’ve seen Rachel before, you’ll know she never disappoints, and she always has something different to offer. Now living overseas, she’s back with a special preview of her forthcoming album “A Penny Plain & Two Pence Coloured”. www.racheldawick.com/ 7.30pm Plimmerton Boating Club. $20 non-members, $15 members and students

As a special treat the openers are The Short Blacks – the fabulous fotographer and guitarist Julian Ward and the just generally all-round fabulous Mr Roy McGuinness on vocals.

And make sure next week’s gig is in your diary – you won’t want to miss it!
