Gig Information

Folk/Pop artist, Mahoney Harris writes intimate, wistful but hopeful tunes. Her voice has been described as 'honest, charming and beguiling'.

Mahoney will be accompanied by the very talented Wayne Bell and Tom Healy. As a 3 piece they'll be playing some old faves and testing out some new songs.

We Didn't Feel Alone possesses instances of real lyrical heft as well as benefiting from the visceral talents of a range of musicians, including multi-instrumentalist Wayne Bell, who offers some excellent drumming, and former Dunedin guitar-slinger Tom Healy who, as producer, helps complete a subtly vibrant picture, topped by Harris' beautiful voice.

Eyreton Hall will be performing as a duo of Toni Keegan and Andy Smith and here's what critics have to say about their last album:

“Ranging from homespun, dusty folk (the Marriage) to sprawling, almost messy rock (Lovelessly) and plaintive, piano-driven ballads (the title track), Featherstitch’s highlights are many… Frontwoman Toni Randle’s excellent sense of melody and bell-like vocal clarity aside, the assured songwriting is complemented by harmonies, horns, banjos and other warm textures...”. Rating: 4/5


Otago Daily Times.

“Randle has a gorgeous ache in her voice but also an assurance that is mature, and the songs step confidently between alt. country, Anglofolk (Just in Case Allelujah) and a kind of haunting turned-down rock of the kind Fleetwood Mac in their classic period might have made if they were attuned to Sixties Serge Gainsbourg… This really is a surprise and surprisingly good, and definitely worth seeking out if those references mean anything”.

- Graham Reid – Elsewhere

Dianne Swann:
Playing live to 85,000 people. Signing to two international labels. Recording with Radiohead. Having her song ‘Birthday’ chosen as NME single of the week. These are just some of the highlights of Dianne Swann’s career as a vocalist, songwriter, and performer. Currently the frontwoman of one of NZ's greatest bands The Bads with Brett Adams, Dianne will be road testing her solo material on the night.
"Adams and Swann confirm that when it comes to songcraft and delivery they stand among our finest... If you haven’t yet, it’s time to pay attention to the Bads. Who are very, very good." - Graham Reid, elsewhere.co.nz
“Songs breathe with rustic charm and fine tunes.." - Russel Baillie, NZ Herald
