Gig Information

Playing a LFMC show with Peter Madill as support, US-born Martha Louise has been performing folk and country music in New Zealand since a visit to the Canterbury Folk Festival in 1975 where she made lifelong friends and sang James Taylor songs till dawn. “I was transported into a life that connected me back to my music,” she said. “It changed many things.”A multi-instrumentalist accomplished on guitar, fiddle and dulcimer, Martha has released three solo albums, a compilation album and one with her early 1980s trio Gentle Annie. She has played all manner of gigs up and down the country, either solo or in various combinations, and shows no signs of slowing down.“It’s been steady,” she says. “Way leads on to way. And being in Auckland surrounded by my best friends who are also awesome musicians, one group morphed into another. It’s just such a special part of my life. And I am amazed: my God, I’m still doing it!”

After the main concert at 7:30 pm, there is an open mic blackboard for experienced musicians to play one song - we welcome allcomers.
