Brace yourself, the winter blues are coming...

Brace yourself for a blast of winter blues, because one of New Zealand’s favourite bluesmen, Darren Watson, is coming to a town near you. This time the award-winning songwriter hits the road with just a trusty old acoustic guitar and his soul-warming voice. Touring his new solo show “Darren Watson - One Voice, One Guitar, The Blues” from June to August 2013 will take him all the way from Gisborne's Dome Room down to Dunedin's Plato.

Darren Watson has spent almost three decades 'paying his blues dues' touring New Zealand and beyond with successful bands like Chicago Smoke Shop, and working alongside American and Kiwi blues legends Billy Boy Arnold and Midge Marsden.
”I look forward to getting back to basics with this solo show.” Says Darren “ I love playing in my bands but there’s nothing like a good song stripped down to just voice and guitar. It’s a chance to really dig deep and express the individual character and story of each one.”

The show includes Watson’s originals alongside classic blues songs from as far back as the 1920s. Renowned for his energetic performances and powerhouse vocals, Watson guarantees to play a varied mix “There’ll be some gentler emotional moments for sure, but plenty of good ol’ foot stompin’ blues to keep the crowd warm on a cold winter’s night”.
