Immersed in New Zealand’s folk scene and coveted for her musical ear and dedication to her art, Krissy dances with melody & tone; always honouring the music, in all ways making it her own.
Collaboration is central to Krissy’s music. In this gig she will be joined by Peter Jackson on the keys; with soulful harmonies to boot. Through music, their hearts will speak to yours causing you to feel like dancing, crying, and everything in between.
Through the medium of the voice, keys, and fiddle, each piece and song acts as a portal to a place, a person, or a memory. Your only job is to surrender to the experience. The music is beauty; it’s poetry; it’s a sensory delight.
A true troubador and talent, Krissy Jackson’s music is not to be missed.
Rene Minz, Bob Brasted, and their daughter Cara are Wandering Thyme. They have been making live music together for nearly 40 years.
You may have seen Wandering Thyme at one of our Grab A Spot concerts, or at folk venues across New Zealand.
They're from Eugene, Oregon. They do Americana, and they do it very well. Their gentle, charming music and soft harmonies vividly evoke a different time and place. With nourishing words and homegrown harmonies, they sing a mix of originals and Americana/folk covers.
They are a real delight to listen to and we look forward to having them play for our club.
Peter Quinn played and sang up a storm at our last Grab-A-Spot open mic night.
He is a singer songwriter and musical theatre performer born and bred in Wellington. He returned to songwriting after a 20 year hiatus when he discovered musical theatre in 2015, appearing in Upper Hutt’s production of Jesus Christ Superstar.
No Man's Heath (Tom Kane)
No Mans Heath (Tom Kane) fuses intricate finger style guitar with sorrowful and intelligent vocals. His songs are a beautiful exercise in restraint. His musical style is reminiscent of Nick Drake and other English finger style greats.
Originally from the UK, Tom has performed in a number of Wellington venues over the past few years.
He adds "My music is personal and vulnerable. I think something can be lost when music gets overproduced, so I try to make my music to be as real as possible, like listening to the soul. This can be uncomfortable as we are bombarded by music that is designed to be understood in five seconds. People are complex and need time to be seen I want my music to reflect that."
