Rafters Music Club
Held at The Unitarian Church 1a Ponsonby Road
at 8pm on the third Friday of each month
Our guest for Friday January 18th will be:
Happy New Year to you all and welcome to an exciting year of music with Rafters Music Club.
And what better way to start off Rafters Music Club for 2019 but with a guest spot from Victoria Vigenser, one of the most distinctive voices and song writing talents on the music scene in New Zealand today. Those of you who have heard her before will know that gritty social commentary and imagery, wrapped in lovely melodies and accompanied by guitar, dulcimer or bodhran, is a theme in Victoria's writing. Victoria returns to Rafters for one final solo show in NZ. After taking her long-awaited debut album "The Gap" through Australia, she's brought it home to the city it started in. The chance to see her live and unplugged is becoming increasingly rare, so don't miss out on seeing her perform, especially in the beautiful acoustics of our venue.
The first half of the evening brings musicians old and new to warm us up before supper and our main guest/s. 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 Videos
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). Please see Linda if you do not want your images publicly available.
Don't forget about the Auckland Folk Festival at the Kumeu Showgrounds over Auckland Anniversary Weekend (January 25th to 28th). If you are at the Festival come over to the Rafters tent and say hello and join in on a jam or two. If we aren't there we are at a concert or workshop, but we will eventually come back to the tent and we'd love to see you.
See you there
Graham, Jennifer, Linda and Alistair.
p.s. the following weekend (1st to 3rd of February) is Kiwigrass, the bluegrass festival at Narrows Park in Hamilton. So much to look forward to!
