Gig Information

Finishing off a great year of acoustic music, Dale's Acoustic Live Music welcomes Peter Madill and Jack MacKenzie to play an Ohau house concert on Saturday evening, 16 December at 7:30 pm. Please reserve a seat with, $20 at the door please for a wonderful concert. Address will be provided on reservation. A plate for supper would be really appreciated also.

It was the early 70s and two young men more than ten thousand kilometres apart were being influenced by both the folk music and the associated musical instruments that became so popular at the time. They are, pictured left to right: Peter Madill and Jack MacKenzie, who became very involved in both the music and the construction and repair of instruments that were used. As it turned out, their respective universes were not only parallel, but converging.

Although both men have different approaches, the common thread of the folk music tradition allows an intuitive understanding of the music. Because of this, adaptation to each other’s repertoires followed naturally. This music is underpinned by vast repertoires, harmony vocals, solid flat picking and the possibility of an appearance of the pedal steel guitar that Jack has been teaching himself to play. It will be an interesting and rewarding evening, steeped in a combined rich history of decades of involvement in this art, complete with unique stories and a perspective born of the pursuit of both luthiery and music.
