Bluegrass and Beyond – more colourfully!

The bluegrass we play is a mix of traditional, and newgrass with some other songs re-interpreted into the bluegrass genre.

  • Cameron Bennett – dobro, vocals and BV’s
  • Pete Parnham – bass fiddle, BV’s.

Circle of Friday night musicians in the Beach Hall
Circle of Friday night musicians in the Titirangi Beach Hall

A bit of a singaround, a bit of a jam session, a bit of what you fancy does you good on a Friday evening.

What do you do?
– We chat, sing, play music and support each other
Do I need to be a member?
– No, Everyone is Welcome, if you like it, join later
Do I need to play an instrument?
– No but if you’re learning then we will help you
Am I too old?
– No, you’re never too old or too young to sing or to make music

We’re a totally informal, small friendly group of people who like to sing and play music. If you do not sing or play and would like to then here you’ll find encouragement. There is never any pressure and you may wish to visit a few times to get confidence or you may already be confident, it does not matter, no one will criticize, only support.

Doors open 7.30pm for a 7.30pm Start
Admission $5

Martin Pearson – Saturday 14th March 2020

Martin is a strange mix of serious song, comedic parody and cabernet merlot. Not quite young enough to be up-and-coming and not quite old enough to be a legend, he will continue to describe himself as a folk-singer out of sheer bloody- mindedness, and will crash-tackle anyone who describes him as eclectic.

Doors open 7.30PM for an 8.00PM start.
