Held at The Unitarian Church 1a Ponsonby Road on the third Friday of each month
Friday 21st September 2018 at 8pm
Our Guests will be
Tweed is a young Auckland-based alternative folk band comprising
Nancy Howie on lead guitar, Devin Ashton on percussion, and Steff Werman on mandolin. Those of you who were at the 2016 Auckland Folk Festival and heard their opening set will want to hear more and those of you who weren't there need miss out no longer! Since their inception in 2012 they have worked on honing a distinctive style of catchy melodies, poly-rhythms, and tight-knit, complex vocal harmonies. As Gary Steel from Metro Magazine says: "Those harmonies make for a magic that - combined with the sparkling sound of acoustic guitar picking and an unusual tendency to weave in complex time signatures and write conceptually - put ‘High-Brow Blues’ (their recent album) in hallowed company." Come and join us as we enjoy the new wave of young folk performers.
The first half of our evening brings musicians old and new to warm us up before supper and our main guests. We welcome new performers. See Graham at the door if you want to perform, but you will need to be there before the 8pm start.

Photos and some videos of performances will be taken during the evening and displayed on our Facebook page. We also have a Rafters Music Club Youtube channel where we display some videos (type Rafters Music Club into Youtube search to find these videos).

See you there
