Much loved kiwi troubadour Monty Bevins hits the road this May and June to celebrate the release of his new single Lovers Again. He'll be joined in Okarito by eccentric-folk musician Fraser Ross for this show at the historic Donovans Store.

Known as a touching, spirited performer, whose soul-folk songs ask the big questions while telling the small stories, Bevins has built a loyal following throughout his homeland.

"I was pleasantly surprised with his obviously honed and crafted live performance, as he effortlessly intertwined elements of folk, roots and soul together." - Poppy Tohill, 13th floor

Monty will be joined for this show by eccentric-folk musician Fraser Ross, described by Capital Times as 'New Zealand's best kept musical secret'. No stranger to touring himself, Fraser will be launching a single of his own called 'Marseille' from his upcoming album 'Life is Magic, Where is my Rabbit?', due to be released in July, 2018 through Home Alone Music.
