Acoustic Routes Monthly Concert – Kist with Janine Mitchell and Nigel Parry, Thursday 22 July

Roseneath School Hall, Maida Vale Road, Roseneath, Wellington. 7.30pm, Thursday 22 July. 

Admission $15.00 members /$20.00 others (cash only; no eftpos facilities).

Pat Higgins (vocal, guitar, flute), Rusty Tonz (cello and vocal), Jude Madill (vocal, fiddle, banjo and guitar), are a talented trio playing what is best described as chamber-folk music. They came together at Wellington Folk Festival when Pat heard the cello through the trees.

Playing intelligent, sensitively arranged songs from Irish to Americana, including some originals, The Kist creates soundscapes of rare beauty. Their unique blend of instrumentation and style crosses time, space and musical fences.

Nigel Parry

With his strong tenor voice and guitar, singer/songwriter Nigel Parry has the reputation of being a particularly engaging live performer. He weaves a unique musical journey from ancient to modern, heart-breaking to humorous.

Janine Mitchell

Janine has returned to her youthful passion for acoustic folk guitar and singing songs with a message. She composes her own originals in a 60’s/70’s folk style, as well as regenerating many of that era’s classics, from Bob Dylan and Joan Baez to Simon & Garfunkel and Cat Stevens.

Janine loves the platform made available through song writing to speak / korero a message that is close to her heart, but mostly she just loves sharing music – food for the soul. She is thrilled to share her passion with the fantastic lead guitar and vocals of Jack Binding, alongside the support of beautiful mandolin from Kevin Ikin.
