The Woolshed Sessions proudly announce a rare reunion, playing two shows in Wellington and Hawke’s Bay this March.

The band’s first live appearances in over a year, and their only summer performances, are at San Francisco Bathhouse, Wellington and Underground Wine Cellar at Black Barn Vineyard, Hawke’s Bay.

The acoustic folk band released the critically acclaimed The Woolshed Sessions in 2008, cementing a unique musical vision that captured the ambient resonance of the Takaka woolshed where the music was created and recorded. Lately however, the eight musicians have seen a lot less of each other due to the demands of their own music projects.

“The new shows are an opportunity for good friends to catch up and play each other’s music again," Pryor said. “Audiences will have an opportunity to hear in a live setting the songs that formed The Woolshed Sessions album, as well as being treated to some new material.”

Singer songwriter Jess Chambers won APRA Best NZ Country Song of 2009 for Stringing Me Along (penned as part of The Woolshed Sessions), and she and bass player Peter Hill have most recently spent time playing and travelling in the USA.

Singer, guitarist Andy Hummel has a new album out this year, All Mountains Are Men with Rosy Tin Teacaddy, and lap steel guitarist and engineer Lee Prebble has continued to capture seminal Wellington music moments at The Surgery with the likes of The Phoenix Foundation.

Vocalist and taonga puoro exponent Al Fraser has been performing and recording with dubbed up traditional style Maori chants group Reo. Guitarist Justin Firefly Clarke has been working on solo material while studying for a postgraduate in orchestration. Drummer Brett Skinner has been focused at his day job, texture painting at Weta Digital.

Age Pryor relocated to Auckland, joining back with Fly My Pretties and performing with the Wellington International Ukulele Orchestra, in-between creating new work with Auckland based musicians.
