Gig Information

Critically acclaimed Dunedin musician Nadia Reid is continuing her annual tradition at the Port Chalmers Town Hall. Nadia Reids Christmas Show, now in its third year, is a festive celebration of local music, artists and talent, under the backdrop of Reids spiritual home - Port Chalmers.

This year spells a change in format for the shows, as Reid will be stepping back from the stage, and will instead act as curator, bringing together some of her favourite acts from around New Zealand.

It has been my goal from the beginning to eventually step back from the stage and act in purely a curatorial role, I want this concert to become a showcase of great art, and a celebration of togetherness and community. Reid said.

Reid added that she may, however, still make a cameo appearance or two.

This years concert features The Broken Heartbreakers, Anthonie Tonnon and Motte.
Dunedin locals Rachel Bailey and John Guy Howell lead The Broken Heartbreakers, and will be joined by their band, made up of Craig Monk, Angus McBryde and Paul McLennan-Kissel. This will be the first Dunedin show for the full band in 5 years. With a music career spanning 18 years and four studio albums, The Broken Heartbreakers combine soulful vocals, shimmering guitars, and a seemingly inexhaustible supply of pop hooks.

Dunedin favourite Anthonie Tonnon will join the bill with his one man band. Tonnon is revered for his sharp hooks and oral storytelling. The former Dunedinite, now Whanganui resident is a significant player in the national music community, and returns to Dunedin for his annual Railland show the following week in Portobello.

Lyttleton cinematic fiddle player Motte (Anita Clark) joins the bill with her eerie and emotive soundscapes. Reid fans will have seen her perform at the Orokonui Ecosanctuary in 2019, performing both as Motte and as part of Reids band. Clark is a sought after musician, having collaborated with The Phoenix Foundation, The Eastern and The Centre of Contemporary Art Toi Moroki and many more.

Since its inception, Nadia Reids Christmas Show has cemented itself as a staple in Dunedins cultural calendar. Tickets go on sale on Friday November the 6th from Reids website or Under the Radar, and are expected to sell fast.
