Mike Harding

What better way to celebrate New Zealand folk music than with Mike Harding.

A musical storyteller at ease with his instrument, his audience and his mission to locate, archive, learn and perform the folk and popular songs of New Zealand’s past and present, from our colonial and folk roots to the Kiwi music of today.

Mike will present a solo performance of songs of home with humour and affection, spontaneity, and wonderful musical skill. Celebrate with him New Zealand, our people, and our stories.

English As, aka Deb Harding and Mary Hubble, will share some of the folk songs they have enjoyed over the years with a certain Englishness about them. Deb had the good fortune to grow up in the North of England – quite a different country to the South – and always sang with her sister. Since emigrating to Aotearoa over 30 years ago she has found many ‘sisters in song’ to join her in a song or two and is delighted that Mary has taken up the challenge.
