June 4th: Andrew & Kirsten London + Supports

June 4th was an evening dedicated to the guitar and guitar music, in conjunction with the From Medieval To Metal guitar exhibition being held at Whirinaki Whare Taonga.

It's hard to not be aware of Andrew London. It's even harder to not notice his immense talent.

Based in Kapiti, he is primarily a songwriter and satirist and performs either solo or as a duo with Kirsten London on bass., or with his own Andrew London Trio. His songs explore social and political themes and although humour and satire are very much to the fore, poignancy and pathos are often not far away. 

He plays at festivals, functions and venues all over New Zealand, and has been known to make the occasional trip to Australia & Norfolk Island. He has even played in Saudi Arabia and released over a dozen albums, some with the Hot Club Sandwich trio, some with a country band called The Cattlestops, and some as the Andrew London Trio.

If you haven't seen him already, you're in for a treat. If you have seen him already, you're in for a treat as well.
