Songs from the South is a concert of acoustic collaboration featuring Dunedin’s Delgirl and Invercargill’s Into The East and introducing Jake Cropley. This night of folk, country and roots music will see award winning southern musicians sharing songs and yarns about the South.
Delgirl, three multi-instrumentalist singer-songwriters, sing in one clear voice as they play roots music bedded in tradition but with contemporary themes. Fluid, luminous voices meld with guitar, ukulele, banjo and standup bass in songs that swing with sweet-tempered ease.
Graeme Woller and Liv McBride of Into The East, have gathered a strong following thanks to their tight performances and crystalline sound. They’ve been described as Fleetwood Mac with the poetic and harmonic charm of Simon & Garfunkel.
Jake Cropley’s talent was discovered last year when the King’s High School student,won the ‘Queen’s Baton Song Writing Competition’ with his Commonwealth Games anthem On Forever Ye Go.
In a cabaret setting in Coronation Hall, this night of southern song will add a new dimension to the Festival line up.
Fri 10th & Sat 11th October,8pm.Coronation Hall.
