Lizzie Cook Trio

at Southern Cross Garden Bar, 39 Abel Smith Street, Central Wellington
Christchurch singer/songwriter, Lizzie Cook teams up her folk and jazz influenced vocals and accordion with two musicians from Wellington - Andreas Lepper on percussion and Graham Flaws on bass with sounds ranging from beautiful mellow to beautiful power-house.

About to release a 4th album, Indigo, Lizzie's music has been described as French cafe with Latin/Caribbean, Celtic, Eastern Europe and heartfelt Kiwi sensibilities. 100% homegrown and reflecting multiple cultures within New Zealand, Lizzie has played in such far-flung places as the Vienna Accordion Festival, Reunion Island in the Indian Ocean, Singapore, Australia and around New Zealand and currently plays solo regularly at Beat St Cafe in Christchurch.

Graham Flaws is now based in Wellington. He has played in the Christchurch blues bands - The Jalapeno's and Black Cat Bone and has performed around NZ, Australia and U.K. festivals with the rock ‘n’ roll band The Velvettes, playing as Zoot Velvette as well as with Gerry Lee and the Desoto's. He lived in Sydney for seven years playing in the originals band The Secret City and acoustic sets around cafes and songwriter nights.

Andreas Lepper is a Wellington musician/percussionist of German origins. Apart from founding and/or working with - a number of local bands of various genres, he passionately teaches and facilitates percussion sessions with groups from all walks of life (special needs, mental health patients, dancers, actors, corporate clients etc). Mainly self-taught, he studied percussion in Cuba and has collaborated with Vanessa May, Gareth Farr and Don McLashan to name a few.
