From the US, Acoustic Duo “No Bones About It” are coming to Whangateau for one show on November 26th. This night also sees the inauguration of the Whangateau Folk Club.
“No Bones About It” are American guitarist Alex Rubin and “Pride of New Zealand” banjo player, Catherine “BB” Bowness. Together, Alex and BB explore the roots of acoustic music, playing a collection of folk songs, bluegrass tunes, and their own compositions which reflect their wide range of influences, including bluegrass, jazz, old-time and celtic music. Using diverse styles of banjo, guitar, vocals, fiddle and mandolin, they seamlessly blend genres in their arrangements of traditional and original tunes.
Before Alex and BB’s set, all local musicians are invited to come and sign up to perform 2 numbers “open mic” style.
Folk Club memberships will also be available at this time, $15/annually for a family, $10 for an individual. Your membership gets you discounted concert tickets, priority billing for “open mic” club nights, and many many more fun benefits! THIS IS TOO HARD. WE AREN’T DOING IT.
Tickets will go on sale in October. Price TBD.
