Cabin Fevre and  the Kawekas are teaming up for a great afternoon of country, folk, bluegrass and Americana. Cabin Fevre is a band unconfined by genre with influences from folk, bluegrass, country, blues, swing, and R&B. Playing original material while also mixing it up with covers from artists as varied as Barry Saunders to Cindy Lauper. The band is made up of Setha Davenport (USA) whose vocal harmonies add depth and colour and her banjo frailing brings an old time feel. Roddy Branagan, (Scotland) who weaves the music together with his highly skilled improvisational mandolin and enchants with a syncopated vocal style. Ian Turbitt's (NZ) guitar, harmonica and vocals are as solid as they come. All of this is held together by Marty Forrer (England/NZ) on upright bass. The second set will feature the ever popular Kawekas with a set of country tunes mixed with some of their jazz infused flavours. They will be joined by some of the members of Cabin Fevre for some of the songs. Grab a coffee and a Rush Munro's ice cream and chill for an afternoon of relaxing fun and good grooves.
