Gig Information

Miles Calder & The Rumours are a folk-rock band from Wellington. Their earthy tones and floating harmonies compliment Calder's heartfelt songs, to produce an atmospheric and timeless americana sound, somewhere between Ryan Adams, Bob Dylan and Neil Young. The band's debut EP The Crossing Over was nominated for the NZ Taite Music Prize (Best Album) and RIANZ Best Country Album.

W.I.M.S. will feature four diverse, self-made acts, highlighting the quality, showmanship and talent we have here in Wellington: busker turned seasoned folky Graeme James, folk-country duo LOST BiRD, folk-rockers Miles Calder & The Rumours and American roots ensemble The Frank Burkitt Band.

These crafted, hour long concerts will take place in the historic Heyday Dome Stage at BATs and will be a rare chance to see these excellent songwriters in such an intimate setting. There will also be a short film accompanying each performance. As well as entertain and inspire, these shows will also serve to give audiences more of an insight into the hard work and day to day life of an independent musician.
