We presently have three sessions a month - the first, second and forth Sunday afternoon, run in a blackboard style, where performers either elect on the night, or book beforehand, to play for approximately 15 – 20 minutes. Guest from further afield are encouraged and we are happy to negotiate longer sets for travellers. Audiences of course are encouraged – musos love an audience!
We provide good quality sound for the artists, and encourage all styles of music, but folk, blues and country are very popular amongst our group. Along with the music, meals and drinks are available. There is no door charge.
We have had over 250 different acts at our sessions in our 3.5 year history including special guest Toni Childs. Regular artists include professionals such as Ian Williams, Tommy Leonard, Noel Gardner, De Greer Yindimincarlie, The Goodwills, Evan Mathieson, Kevin Brand, Jon Brown, Glenn Stephens, Danica and Klaeton, Kylee-B, Karen Law, Warren Freeman, Mary Martin, Lawrie White, Rob McGowan, Kerry Lawson, Paul Fagan, Scoobs Powell and up-and-coming stars such as Cassi Hilbers, JJ Munyard, Kaiyana (KK) May, Camillah Maynard, Kezia Hughes, Adrian Hiltunen and Nate Tuitahi .
