Gig Information

After a break of six years, the iconic country-roots band the Coalrangers gather from both sides of the Southern Alps to perform in Christchurch.

The Coalrangers are a hard act to pigeon-hole, as they have always comfortably straddled numerous musical genres. They have produced three acclaimed albums that showcase the eclectic range of this unique group.

Their first CD Coast To Coast won the Country Album of the Year at the 1996 Tui Music Awards. This was followed by Home Tonight which highlighted the songwriting talents of the band members.

In 2005 the popular Harbour Light Sessions was released. This live album was recorded at the Coalrangers’ annual Office Christmas Party held each December at the much-lamented Harbour Light Theatre in Lyttelton. A popular album that recorded the diversity, unmistakable musicianship and live appeal of this iconic South Island band.

“Their music is a reflection of each member’s tastes and influences. Besides the obvious country and blues, there’s also calypso, reggae and folk music as well as songs such as 36 V8 Ford, Louisville, Otira, Karamea Cowboy and West Coast Bound, that positively drip with the imagery of where they’re from”.
