Gig Information

Niels Gedge plays The Fold, Friday 3 April at 6.30 pm. He's a bit of a legend in folk music circles and a favourite with the critics...

“…..beautiful playing and personal yet universal songs that draw on timeless traditions of gospel, folk music and blues” Nick Bollinger, NZ Radio Broadcaster and Music journalist.

Tickets are $10 early bird, $15 door sales.

Niels Gedge performs throughout New Zealand in pubs, craft breweries, cafés, acoustic music and folk clubs, cultural centres, house concerts and at festivals. Many Wellington musicians and music followers remember him as the person who gave them their chance to perform full sets, at the iconic Mojo Acoustic in Willis Street, on Friday nights
His songs home in on life and love and the things that matter. Many of Niels’ songs are located in our own Aotearoa/New Zealand. You can see the mountain, hear the waterfall and watch the haymaking in the words he chooses. Like Leonard Cohen or Paul Simon, he writes from the standpoint of a poet, making every word count. He also covers great songs that everyone will recognise and enjoy.

Niels’ CD’s Maui’s Whale and Southern Land, will be available for sale at The Fold.

• quotes (reviews)
Nick Bollinger (Radio NZ) describes Niels’ second CD, Maui’s Whale, this way: “It's a CD full of beautiful playing and personal yet universal songs that draw on timeless traditions of gospel, folk music and blues”.
Matthew Forss (Inside World Music): “The folk and blues-tinged vocals of singer and guitarist, Niels Gedge, paints a beautiful picture of intelligent music from a seemingly-unlikely region of the world: New Zealand…the songs are led by Niels’ intense and honest lyrics that are wrapped around a heady mix of rhythms and melodies that never get old. The playful tunes bring in some blues and gospel overtones amid a folk background…”
