Our guests for this month are the wonderful Clare Senior and Nick Johnston

Singers, songwriters and parents of two enthusiastic young performers who just can't keep off the stage!

Clare is no stranger to the folk scene. Having grown up with a family tradition of folk singing, Clare has performed for more than 30 years, both solo and with such groups as Florabunda, Blacksmith Band and most recently as part of Supersheep.
Nick, on the other hand, learnt his trade in the once smokey trad sessions of Auckland's Irish pubs ­ first on whistle, then on bodhran, mandolin and Octave mandolin, before venturing into songwriting.

Having met at the Auckland folk festival a dozen years ago, this couple has gone from strength to strength, developing into a singing/songwriting team who perform a mixture of traditional and self- penned works. Covering subjects froall over the world and all through history, expect a mix of humour, tragedy and social commentary, sometimes all in the same song.
