Gig Information

Opening Act - John Wright:
Along with having a hugely successful career in international cricket, John Wright has recently released two albums of self-penned songs. He has played the guitar, accompanying his excellent vocals, for many years. John's music tells stories about real life and through his extensive travel playing for New Zealand and coaching India, the Black Caps and Mumbai India, among others, he has some very interesting insights and stories to relate through his songs. He will open the show with a few songs and Graham will join him on a couple.
Graham Wadrop:
Singer, song writer, acclaimed finger-style guitarist, luthier
2020 got off to a busy start - gigs and concerts round and about, a highlight was
playing for Sam Neill at Two Paddocks, his vineyard in Central Otago. Sam sang a
song with me and has invited me back to his next event.
After 2019’s great run of five weeks of concerts and festivals in Canada, concerts of James Taylor’s music with my good friend Tom Rainey in Christchurch, Nelson and
Golden Bay, the release of my CD ‘Ghost Written’, 2020’s sudden halt to everything with the COVID-19 lockdown was a shock to the system.
However, I used the lockdown period to put together a new instrumental album which, predictably, I called ‘Lockdown’.
I recently signed with New Frontier Records. Now you’ll find me on Spotify and other streaming sites.
I’m excited to announce another new CD entitled ‘I Tell It All To My Guitar’. This is another collection of original songs recorded in a ‘live in the studio’ manner. This album will be the theme of my concerts this year. Of course I will still be playing my favourite covers…
I’m really looking forward to playing for you.
