“A man that must surely be poised to take over the New Zealand folk-music scene at any minute”- Libel
Hitting the highways once again this winter is award-winning folk troubadour Graeme James.
2016 was an exciting year for the artist who released his debut original album News From Nowhere in September to great acclaim. The album was a finalist for the NZ Folk Album of The Year and the lead single ‘Alive’ gained second place in the Folk Category of the prestigious international Unsigned Only Songwriting Competition.
Evidence of his endless hard work and hours spent on the road, Graeme started his musical journey busking on the streets of Wellington and sleeping in his trusty ‘Hotel Corona’. These stories and experiences have shaped his captivating and unmissable live show featuring electric fiddle, guitar, bass, baritone ukulele, beatboxing, harmonica, mandolin and his velveteen vocals all with the help of a trusty loop pedal.
Graeme’s last tour almost sold out completely nationwide, so get it quick to hear the songs you love and a couple of newbies.
Please note that doors are open from 7 pm, and the music will begin at 7.30pm. Buy tickets online at eventfinda.co.nz.
