Our November concert is jam-packed with performers, featuring an overseas act, a local act and an Auckland act!

A young contemporary English folk singer based in Sheffield, Kirsty Bromley draws upon a wide range of traditional music.

Kirsty has a disarmingly transparent voice, but also the uncanny and beautiful knack of drawing attention to the song rather than the messenger, by the manner in which she employs it.
Kirsty has performed at folk festivals in the UK and abroad and is currently touring her debut album, Time Ashore, which features original songs as well as carefully curated folk gems.

A proper folk-singer of the highest calibre, totally unpretentious, completely in love with what she’s doing and she totally ‘gets it!’ – bloody brilliant and great to have it back!
Keith Kendrick

The future is bright for Kirsty Bromley, a traditional singer of great integrity with a voice beyond her years.
James Fagan

Mike Garner and Derek Jacombs
Widely respected Bay of Plenty musicians and songwriters, Derek Jacombs (Kokomo) and Mike Garner (Mike Garner Band) have joined forces for an informal journey down the backroads of old blues, folk and country, exploring the sounds now called Americana.

They'll be breaking out a host of instruments – resonator guitars, banjos, mandolins – for an eclectic musical trip that stretches from Bessie Smith ballads to their own songs.

Mike Garner is a well-known New Zealand blues singer and songwriter. He has a wealth of blues experience over nearly 40 years, having played in Europe, Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific, and Kathmandu in Nepal. He has made 6 CDs. A multi-instrumentalist, Mike plays acoustic, electric and resonator guitars, harmonica and occasionally mandolin and other stringed instruments too!
For the past two decades guitarist Derek Jacombs has been the singer and songwriter with blues and roots favourites Kokomo. The band has released 10 studio albums and a live CD and DVD. He has also written music for theatre and television, served as director of the National Jazz Festival, and is one half of cult duo the Self-Righteous Brothers.

Opening Act
Graveyard Shift will be our opening act. Despite their name, they are a lively four-piece band all the way from Auckland.
