‘Out of the Blue’ is when something suddenly appears or arrives in your life unexpectedly. Although not entirely unprecedented, this grouping of experienced and talented performers preparing a show for the post covid LFMC/Tsunami concerts is a new venture for all concerned.
Surprise or not, we are excited to combine the instrumental excellence of local Kevin Watson on guitar, the smooth vocals of singer/songwriter Gill Allen, the intuitive upright bass and singing of new Kiwi Christine Lansford, with Levin’s Simon Burgess adding his troubadour skills.
This hugely internationally experienced group are proficient in many genres, weaving these skills into a varied program of jazz, folk, country and originals with tasty vocals and a gypsy flair. From ballads to gospel, raunchy to smooth, their biggest problem is not what to play, but what not to play!
Note: Christine is caught in the USA/MIQ Covid trap and will not be back in New Zealand for this performance. We are lucky to have the able assistance of Berndt Reiss to cover for her.
Evening begins with the open blackboard – one item each please – and our guests will play after supper. Covid regulations per Level 2 will apply if required so numbers may be limited. Entry fee is $10 public/$5 members.
