FFF is proud to share with you two very special concerts coming to Featherston:
..as the dust settles on the Summer Season of Featherston First Fridays, and the nights grow longer, and winter is coming.. it’s time for less bad writing and more good music. Last year over our offseason, we brought you the New Zealand Guitar Quartet and Delaney Davidson: this winter we are looking forward to jazz supremo Jonathan Crayford touring with a grand piano, and altcountry darlings Eb & Sparrow.
Jonathan is a performer and composer, one of NZ’s top pianists. He recently acquired a Steinway D grand piano from a NZ-based branch of the Guggenheim family and is touring NZ with it: this is the first of hopefully many tours the piano will make of the country in the coming years. The whole story is fantastic and can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/SteinwayonTour/
He’s coming to Featherston on Anzac Day for an unmissable jazz and classical experience.
Wednesday 25 April – 8pm
ANZAC HALL, BELL ST, FEATHERSTON
EB & SPARROW
Supreme sweethearts of New Zealand alt-country, Eb & Sparrow bring their highly anticipated third record SEEING THINGS on tour throughout New Zealand with curated visual installation – a special one of a kind show. Written by front-woman Ebony Lamb and arranged by Eb & Sparrow, the new album was recorded in the historic homestead Ahiaruhe, in the heart of the Wairarapa, in January 2017. Utilising vintage recording equipment and instruments in the large wooden building to take advantage of the lush textures and presence, the band has pulled out all the stops.
Now in a show not to be missed, Eb & Sparrow return to the Wairarapa to showcase their sound and vision in Featherston’s beautiful and atmospheric Kiwi Hall.
$25 doorsales (if available)
