Blackbird Ensemble are heading to bed… And you're invited. Wear your finest pyjamas, throw on your slippers, and head to DREAMS at the Leigh Sawmill this December.
'DREAMS' is the newest creation from Blackbird Ensemble who have become known for their elaborate and powerful musical concert experiences. 
Starring 9 versatile multi-instrumentalists, this miniature orchestra presents an eclectic mix of music by artists such as Stravinsky, Piazolla, The Smiths, Calexico, Fleetfoxes and Radiohead. Blackbird Ensemble's set list adopts its usual disregard for genre, binding its concert together with thematic links; this time, music inspired by dreamstates, nightmares, lullabies and the rituals of the bedroom. Featuring the vocal talents of Jessie Cassin (Sola Rosa, Nz Opera), and Mikey Brown (Outside in.)

For the first time ever outside of Auckland, Blackbird Ensemble performs at The Leigh Sawmill cafe, transforming it's stage into an old fashioned boudoir. Dinner service 6-9pm, Show starts at 9.30pm.
