Monty Bevins Lovers Again Tour

Tour Information
Much loved kiwi troubadour Monty Bevins hits the road this May and June to celebrate the release of his new single Lovers Again. The song features a beautiful violin piece, and for this show at Bicycle Junction Monty will be joined by that violinist Nikita Tu-Bryant, who'll also perform an opening set to kick the evening off. The show will also feature special guest Alistair Fraser, weaving some taonga puoro magic into one of Monty's brand new yet to be released tracks!

Known as a touching, spirited performer, whose soul-folk songs ask the big questions while telling the small stories, Bevins has built a loyal following throughout his homeland. With a warm rich voice and articulate guitar grooves, he digs out and distills themes of tenderness, personal revolution and adventure. Perpetually touring, at a pace that allows encounter, Monty draws inspiration from the stories of the people he meets...

Lovers Again was a song I wrote about on an older couple I met in Arthurs Pass whose three girls have all since moved out into the world, leaving Mum and Dad at home in a big house in Woodstock (Canterbury). That's where I went round to visit them on the day they were getting set to move out, south to a smaller place, struggling to turn the page as they pointed to the spot on the floor their eldest daughter had taken her first steps, and the height markings etched into the door frame...

I was pleasantly surprised with his obviously honed and crafted live performance, as he effortlessly intertwined elements of folk, roots and soul together
