We’re trying something new at the Whangateau Folk Club this month. Introducing the Whangateau Radio Hour
It’s winter time and we all need something to warm our hearts. What better than an old-fashioned radio show? Broadcast live from Whangateau Hall, four of New Zealand’s finest folk musicians will make beautiful music and entertain you. Come by for a bowl of soup, a glass of wine, and a show!
Jenine and Nat Torkington, from the Pipi Pickers. Jenine’s moving voice, Nat’s unique banjo, and Jenine’s anchoring bass will warm your extremities.
Chris ‘Albi’ Dent, from Albi and the Wolves. Chris’s character-filled voice and distinctive guitar playing have wowed audiences around the world.
Shimna Higgins, from David and Shimna. Shimna’s divine voice and sweet Irish fiddle playing are the fiery brew the doctor prescribes for midwinter blues.
We’ll livestream the show to an international audience from the acoustically- and aesthetically-beautiful 132-year old Whangateau Hall. Tell your friends to watch the stream on the night: visit https://whangateau.co.nz to find links to the stream.
Monday, June 28, $10, 6:45pm doors open, 7pm floor singers, 8pm break, 8:30pm radio show.
July club night is Monday the 26th. Our guests will be the incredible Looking for Alaska, rescheduled from our March Club night. The music they make is simply phenomenal: soaring acoustic ballads driven by Aaron Gott’s instrumental brilliance and Amy Maynard’s powerful, soaring vocals. They are a band not to be missed!
Monday, July 26, $10, 6:45pm doors open, 7pm floor singers, guests after the half time supper break.
