Colin Speir, guitarist and banjo picker, has been around the NZ music scene for many years. During this time he has played on innumerable recordings with a wide variety of excellent musicians, as well as maintaining a full-time teaching career. He performs with the band Bluegrass & Beyond NZ and other “line-ups".
His capability extends to a range of styles, from rock, blues, folk, ragtime and bluegrass. Colin is an accomplished songwriter of many originals, some of which he performs live. He has some samples, check out his anti-whaling song: Arm the Whales:
also his take on the early NZ drinking culture: The Six O’Clock Swill
and a CD of hymns for guitar: Deep Deep Love, available on Bandcamp.
Another album of tunes is on his agenda for 2021, God willing.
