Feb 12th 2019: Paddy Burgin’s Wooden Box Band

Our next guest headliner is Paddy Burgin and the Wooden Box Band. They describe themselves as an unrelated family of musicians from all walks of life who enjoy writing and playing urban folk music around Wellington and environs beyond.

The Wooden Box Band's members were harvested some time ago from Wellington bands such as the Balkanistas, the Mockers, Dunstan Rangers and Jessie James and the Outlaws. You can hear a variety of styles at play here. . 

Usually they come in a group of half a dozen, just like bread rolls, and features guitar, fiddle, trumpet, electric guitars, bass and drums. 

At the moment they are championing their brand new album, Far Far Away, which they will be performing tracks from in Upper Hutt. The album is the fourth for the band. 

They will be supported by...
