Gig Information

Adam McGrath is road testing a raft of new songs this winter, catch him at Blue Smoke on June 2nd with support from Foxtrots.

Described as “two parts Woody Guthrie, one part revival meeting and one part group hug” a McGrath show goes straight for the spirit level in all of us. Looking deep for the heart and hoping to reach the thinking part of the brain all the while strumming his three chords like his life depended on it. Which of course it does, as of course it should.

His songs have gathered a clutch of good reviews in NZ and overseas, he's been nominated for a couple of serious music awards (including the Apra Silver Scroll).

Barry Saunders from The Warratahs simply described him as “The Truth”.

“NZ’s toughest minded songwriter”-Graeme Reid

“One of the best modern roots artists, from any country”-No Depression magazine

“A national treasure”-Radio NZ National

With The Eastern and solo he has shared stages with and opened for Fleetwood Mac, Steve Earle, Paul Kelly, Old Crow Medicine Show, Jimmy Barnes and many more. But he takes the most pride in getting up and putting it down, in both small towns and big, choosing real gigs over showcases and the joy of shaking hands and sharing beers with the folks met along the way.

A people’s player, he works his ass off for any audience he finds himself in front of. Through, yarns, ballads and barnstormers, he goes looking most nights of the year for that deep well of magic that threads through the humble folk song.
