Wildbirds and Peacedrums Headed to Auckland This Month with Fire!

Wednesday 6th January, 2016 12:44PM

Acclaimed duo Wildbirds and Peacedrums are headed to Auckland later this month along with psychedelic/free jazz group Fire!.

The two Swedish acts will perform at a series of events put on by the Audio Foundation appropriately dubbed the Fire! Festival. The festival will take place over three nights and will see Fire! - saxophonist Mats Gustafsson,  Johan Berthling, Andreas Werliin and Miriam Wallentin as a special guest - headline the first two nights. The final night will then see husband and wife Andreas Werliin and Miriam Wallentin perform as Wildbirds and Peacedrums. Each night will also host additional international and local acts including Swiss experimental duo Hans Koch and Thomas Peter, Shab Orchestra, Jane Austin and more.

The festival will then lead into the annual Bush Tucka event which will also feature many of the acts performing at the Fire! Festival but in a more improvised manner. Here are the details!
