Sean Kirkwood is a Wellington musician that plays a mix of guitar and lap slide with a distinctive sound of alt-country blues. During his teen years while living in the Hawke's Bay he earned the opportunity to open for musical great, Eric Clapton. More recently he has shared the stage with Dan Green, Wyn Drabble, and New Zealand blues icon Darren Watson. Sean will be appearing alongside Jesse Sheehan and Emily Forbes at The Kings Arms in Auckland as part of his five date national winter tour including several appearances at the Bay of Islands International Jazz and Blues Festival.

She is wicked, outrageous, alluring, with the voice of a bad tempered angel. He will engage you with his rock star demeanour, demanding your attention, singing like a demon, with a voice soaked in a barrel of whiskey.
KNiKi and Mike Beale deliver a powerful blues rock performance, often described as a combination of Janis Joplin and Eric Clapton, with music ranging from intimate acoustic moments to the full on energy of a 5 piece band. KNiKi’s vocal chords are packed with rustic roar, angelic pitch, and immense diversity. Infused with Mike Beale’s fluid yet dynamic guitar playing and a voice that’s delivered with explosive roars and intimate whispers. Candy to your ears and bubbles in your mouth.

Emilie Forbes is a young singer-songwriter hailing from Wanganui, having studied full time musical theatre at Apollo theatre school in Auckland, she began to re-identify with her folk beginnings-the hippie clothes, show-off love of the stage and over a decade of piano lessons were finally put to good use as her years of "ideas" started to turn into songs, and her flatmates were forced to listen and comment on her almost nightly "home showcases". Almost a year on and her nightly shows continue but for larger audiences at various venues around Auckland. Having recently been sponsored she looks forward to recording and releasing her debut album later this year.
