The Blue Moments Project is back! Following a sold-out premiere at the 2017 Southern Lakes Festival of Colour, the blue crew are taking their evening of jazz, blues and spoken word on the road for a mini tour through Wanaka, Queenstown, and Dunedin.

The show is the result of a collaboration between writer Laura Williamson and composer Angela Mote, who, together with a group of Upper Clutha-based musicians, created a sequence of works that gives new meaning to the phrase “music and lyrics”.

Some spoken, some instrumental and some sung, the ‘Blue Moments’ pieces range from haunting to soulful to funny.

Working from Laura’s poems, which explore what it is to be foreign and what it means to become a New Zealander, Angela took both literal and rhythmic cues to interpret the original writing as music.

Performed by a five-piece band comprised of Graeme Perkins on piano, Jeff Sinnott on drums, Angela Mote on flute and saxophone, Dominic Stayne on upright bass, and with Queenstown-based jazz/blues singer Karen Hattaway on vocals, the result is something as beautiful as it is unexpected.

Doors Open From 6.30pm.
