Gig Information

En route to The Mussel Inn for a 3-day celebration of Bob Dylan's 80th birthday, Fraser Ross is passing by The Plant in Blenheim to perform songs from his first 4 albums, his upcoming album, and probably...some Bob Dylan!

Bringing with him a selection of Christchurch's excellent musicians this will be a fun night of songs, and raconteuring.

Often touring the top of the South as a long-time member of 13-piece Wellington band, Newtown Rocksteady, Ross is ready to rock. Folk rock that is.

‘New Zealand’s best kept musical secret’
—Capital Times

‘His music, which has traditional folk roots, has a wonderful way of breaking free from genre’
—The Wireless

‘Like a Kiwi Billy Connolly’
—The View, Scotland

Eccentric-folk musician Fraser Ross returned to New Zealand in 2020 after living in Scotland was cut short. He has supported bands such as Phoenix Foundation, French for Rabbits, The Nudge, and Nadia Reid.

His first two EPs, And Birds Do Sing (2009) and To Places (2012) established him as a serious talent and a brilliant, loud-shirted presence within the New Zealand underground. His two LPs, Mongrels (2015), and Life is Magic, Where is My Rabbit? (2018) confirmed this.

Ross has played at numerous arts festivals, including the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, LitCrawl Wellington, the Hamilton Gardens Arts Festival, Wellington City Summer Sounds, and the Christchurch Nostalgia Festival.

He is currently working on his next album, 'Thunderhead', which will be released later in 2021.
