Family and friends will be able to farewell multi-talented musician Sam Prebble at a funeral service being held in his honour tomorrow morning. Prebble, who was in his early 30s, passed away on Friday. He was a stalwart of the local folk scene, performing with many acts over the years including Bond St Bridge, Mermaid & Mariner, The Broken Heartbreakers, Reb Fountain & The Bandits, The Dylan Storey Band, The Bitter Years and Great North.


Musical cohorts and close friends Reb Fountain, Brendan Turner and Dylan Storey shared the news on Facebook over the long weekend, writing in a collective post: "We are heartbroken to lose our dearest companion and are doing everything we can to stay strong and rally support for one another and Samís family. We will do all we can to honour his life and outstanding musical legacy and in time share more with you all. I hope you can bare with us as we come to terms with his loss and our grief - our hearts go out to you now."


UnderTheRadar was sadden to learn of Sam's passing and send our thoughts to all his friends and family. His funeral service is being held at 11am on Wednesday 29th October 2014 at The Hopetoun Alpha in Auckland. Afterwards there will be a gathering at the Wine Cellar. People are being invited to send photos, videos and memorabilia to: samprebblememorial@gmail.com. Those unable to make the service can send sentiments to the same address to be shared with Sam's family.

A massive loss to New Zealand music. Sam was a prolific artist, a captivating performer and a friendly chap in person (although I didn't really talk to him much). I really respected what he did, especially with Bond Street Bridge.

@ppp if an article doesn't mention how someone passes, it usually means they committed suicide.
