Bill Morris and Hyram Ballard – 6 April 2014

Our second musical event for 2014 can now be announced: Bill Morris and Hyram Ballard  of Central Otago are teaming up for an acoustic tour.  Bill plays what he calls “Kiwicana,” in the same vein as Americana but with a distinct New Zealand atmosphere to his lyrics.  His song writing has been compared to Billy Bragg and Paul Kelly.  I gave his album a listen and his voice reminds me a little of early Stone Roses, if that means anything to you.

Bill Morris

Hyram is a long-standing member of one of my favourite New Zealand bands, The Chaps.  Hyram is an amazing multi-instrumentalist, singer and performer.

The show is booked for the Hall, Sunday, 6 April, 3pm – 5pm.  $15 on the door.

This should be a great afternoon of music.  They might even be joined on stage by some locals for a little jam session. 😉
