Gig Information

New Zealand's folk trio Turkey The Bird will remind you of the famous Margarita cocktail, infused with a hint of Simon & Garfunkel, 2 ounces of Mumford and Sons, a splash of banjo, served on ice on a sunny day, but this time it’s placed on a huge plate of shiny brass.
For this very unique performance “Turkey The Bird is teaming up with the giant, 40 piece “Hawera Brass Band”!
Together they will perform a unique and fun collaborative live show that features brassy arrangements of catchy folk songs from both of Turkey The Bird’s chart topping albums.
Hailing from the New Zealand left coast town New Plymouth, this uplifting band will hit you with beautiful three part harmonies and toe tapping rhythms.
The bearded trio features Andre Manella from Switzerland on guitar, bass and percussion, Adrian Whelan from Ireland on guitar, bass and spoons, and Sol Bear Coulton, the token kiwi, on Banjo and slide guitar.
