Acoustic Routes Couples Concert

at Meow, 9 Edward Street, Central Wellington
The first Acoustic Routes concert of the year honours St Valentine and features some of the many couples who perform on the Wellington folk music scene.

They include:

LIZ MERTON AND TIM BARRIE who play a selection of music with a Middle Eastern bent on violin, percussion and ud.

A set from them is a bit like a box of Loukoum (Turkish delight). The mixture may not be what you are used to but it will be tasty and sweet.

RUTH BIRNIE AND GERARD HUDSON: Ruth and Gerard have been part of folk music in Wellington for many years, but this is the first time they have featured as a duo in an Acoustic Routes concert. They play a fairly eclectic mix, including material from Richard Thompson, Sandy Denny, Leonard Cohen, Roy Harper and Gerard's take on the humorous songs of Jake Thackray.

ANDREW ZIELINKSI AND JANE MCKINLAY: Jane and Andrew have their acoustic music roots in Americana country with influences like Gram Parsons and Emmylou Harris. They do a mix of covers and Andrew's originals. Both have formative roots in Otago and they met via music, singing in an acapella pop/rock choir called The Doubtful Sounds.

Also, a guest spot from SARAH DUCKWORTH, now resident in the US. she's been back in New Zealand with hubby and western swing performer, Don Burnham on a Fern Frond Boogie Boys tour.
