Adam Piggott & Jayne Freemand – Friday 9th May
UK folk and Americana songwriters Adam Piggott and Jayne Freeman will be playing live at Artworks Community Theatre as part of their current New Zealand tour.
Described by NetRythms as “Genuinely uplifting” with “intensely adept acoustic guitar styling”, this guitar/ukulele duo showcase their songwriting alongside fresh interpretations of often unexpected classic songs. With strong influences from country, folk, blues and jazz, their sound has been described as a mix of Paul Simon, Leonard Cohen, Debbie Harry and Ry Cooder with a modern Nouvelle Vague twist.
They played a string of dates across Europe last year that took them from street festivals in Croatia, Germany and Italy to a circus tent in Austria and two tours of the UK. The duo also played a number of dates in New Zealand at the beginning of 2013, which prompted invites for a return visit.
Adam says, “It’s great to be invited back to New Zealand again so soon. Everyone who came to see us was so positive about our music. We have a lot of friends and fans from last year to catch up with, and we’re looking forward to playing a host of new venues, too.”
A gig for all lovers of finely played acoustic music, acoustic guitars and ukuleles.
Doors and café open at 7:00.
Tickets $10 prepaid or $15 at the door
