Grant Haua who was longtime half of blues-roots stompers SWAMP THING ( with drummer Michael Barker ) . Will present in concert his deep timbred soul blues vocals/ acoustic guitars and foot percussion ( cajon/ snare ) in a performance of style that relates heavily to his maori culture which are at the heart of these songs . Grant wants the audiences at his show to feel like they're guests in his home and like the songs, his home is pretty simple but it's warm, cozy and friendly. So welcome. This is his place. Awa Blues tour 2022 . Kia ora koutou

'A seasoned artist who touches all kinds of points in the blues and folk from Taj Mahal and JJ Cale to dialled down Stevie Ray and even an adventurous touch of acoustic James Blood Ulmer. Seems like this is Grant Haua's time' Graham Reid (Elsewhere Magazine).

Grant will be playing his latest release “Awa Blues” and throwing in a few classics from his back catalogue.

Rolling Stone Album of the Week. An “old-fashioned” blues-rock record, masterful and stunning which is already rising to the level of the best songwriters of the genre. Definitely essential”.
– Philippe Langlest (Rolling Stone Magazine).

“Without revolutionising the genre “Awa Blues” brings a welcome breeze of freshness. With simple effective guitar playing, a voice to make mountains crumble, and a minimalist rhythm, Grant Haua knows how to make the powder speak with good melodies and an unstoppable sense of groove. “Awa Blues ” can only seduce”.
– Jean-Marc Petit (La Voix du Nord)
