After two years of immersion in folk music here in NZ I think I’m getting the hang of it!
Watch this impromptu opening set for Bill Angus. It’ll take a bit more experience yet to be fully comfortable in this genre, but damn this felt good! Even (or especially) due to a couple hours notice and a broken g string (that was passably replaced with a g string from an electric guitar)…rock and roll 🤟😂 The bar staff, audience and culture here is ace! Hastings, I’m a fan ♥️
December 23rd – Bill Angus and The Mighty Ways at Cabana Club, Napier
December 31st – Bowie Bowie at The Secret Garden
Popup TBA – Piano and Spray Paint feat Maggie Cocco and Josh Kiwikiwi
