David, Campbell, Thiea, Chris, Jack

The Penman Family consists of a relatively connected bunch of people  namely….

Jack Penman  –  Dad/Grandad
Chris Penman – Daughter/Sister/Mother
David Penman  Son/ Brother/Uncle
Thiea Bell          Daughter/Sister/Aunty
Campbell Maydon Grandson/Son/Nephew

They have been singing together for around 50 years, give or take a decade or two, singing anything and everything from The Banana Boat Song to  The Battle of Sowerby Bridge, Delilah to Down where the Drunkards Roll and beyond.

They have a been present at most folk festivals in NZ and beyond in different combinations over the years – and can usually be found late at night belting out traditional and contemporary unaccompanied ballads and songs.

Coming from a Scottish background, they love nothing more than  good rousing choruses and songs that speak with  social conscience.

Their forte is acapella singing (unacompanied) utilising their fine vocal chords and they will endeavour to share their knowledge and love of the songs and times of which they sing.

Doors open 7.30PM for an 8.00PM start.

An evening of taking turns to share music and songs around the circle, joining in when you can, with harmonies on your instrument or voice. Participate or listen. The choice is yours.

We’re a totally informal, small friendly group of people who like to sing and play music. This is a good place for experienced musicians to meet up and enjoy playing together.

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 criticise, only support.

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

We are here. At the bottom of Titirangi Beach Road, just beyond the car park.
