Steampunk Minstrels at Acoustic Routes, Thursday 22 August

Steampunk Minstrels

Roseneath School Hall, Maida Vale Road,  Thursday 22 August, 7.30 pm

Steampunk Minstrels is a band with its beginnings in sunny South Africa where MairiAnne met Marius and they combined forces as two 12-string guitar players who loved the textural possibilities of a 24-string onslaught.

Now in Wellington, the two have occasionally wowed the Newtown Open Mic nights with their unique blend of Celtic and African folk music with a hint of jazz and rock. Don’t miss this distinctive and exciting concert.

The first half will be an open mic, so come along prepared if you have something you’d like to perform!

Ticket Price:  $15 ($10 members) – cash only, no eftpos facilities. Supper provided.

Shining Stars at Acoustic Routes, Thursday 25 July

Joan Prior young perfomers at Acoustic Routes 

Roseneath School Hall, Maida Vale Road,  Thursday 25 July, 7.30 pm

This very special concert features all four winners of the Joan Prior Young Performers Award since it began in 2014. Acoustic Routes establish the JPA in 2014 in memory of Joan Prior (pictured left), who was a folk phenomenon in Wellington for 30 years. After she died in 2010, her family donated her instruments, music and memorabilia to Acoustic Routes, enabling us to set up the award in her name for young performers, aged 15 to 25 years.

Starring Flix Rose (2014), Daniel White (2015), Hunter Giltrap (2016), and Emily Griffiths and Thomas Stonehouse (2018). A chance to enjoy again some stellar performances by these talented, passionate and dedicated young musicians.

Ticket Price:  $15 ($10 members) – cash only, no eftpos facilities. Supper provided.
