Eric McEachen

Blues with personality, or rather, blues with irrepressible personality. That’s Eric McEachen, stalwart of the NZ folk music scene since the late 1960s and still going strong in his 7th decade.

Flora Knight and Sean Donald

Whether it’s a rip roaring ragtime fiddle tune, a mournful country classic, or a sweet and silly waltz played in an old dance hall, in a living room, on a street corner or by a bonfire, Sean and Flora will play til their fingers bleed for whoever will take a minute to stop and listen

The Secret Lives of the Ukelele

From out of the primordial swamps and fault lines of Otautahi-Christchurch The Secret Lives of Ukuleles bring you the future of ukuleles – and cigar box guitars too.
