Sunday 20 March: Himmerland with Nuala Kennedy

Don’t miss this event with an exciting line-up of overseas performers.

Nuala-Himmerland photoWhen they breezed through Wellington last time, Simon Burgess said, “What with anthems to whiskey, home, the sea, virgins, soldiers, waltzes and polkas – you know you are in a folk concert. But when the music with these themes  is played with panache and artistry by an eclectic group of highly competent and  professional musicians like Himmerland, you realize that times have changed.

“They were well able to present a program of folk/roots music with authenticity and excellence, fusing sheer musicality with understated passion for  their material … extending also into the domains of jazz, calypso and reggae.”

This time they are pairing up with celebrated traditional Irish singer and flute player Nuala Kennedy, for what’s sure to be an unforgettable night of international music and magic.

“The Danes are coming! Don’t miss them next time!” Simon Burgess
