The final MusicHaven house concert for 2016 is on Sunday 4 December at 2pm.
Cost is $10. Let me know if you are coming by email firstname.lastname@example.org
or text 0274515486. We will follow the concert with a shared meal.
“Reverie” are Victoria Vigenser and Tony Hillyard:
Victoria has a spell binding quality to her voice that she weaves into every performance. With a special passion for harmony, her accompaniment on guitar, dulcimer or bodhran is always delicate and thoughtful. Victoria holds traditional song at her musical core, and has also developed an enviable reputation as a talented young singer/songwriter and vocal accompanist.
Tony is recognised for performances that are liberally laced with strong, emotional melodies and lyrics. A balladeer at heart, he researches and chooses his material with skill and sensitivity. Tony’s voice has been described as “hot, creamy chocolate!”, and his fingerstyle accompaniment on guitar and six string banjo adds layers of melody as if another voice were in the mix.
Together they sing and play songs, ballads and melodies drawn from the head, heart and soul of the folk roots movement.
Celia will play beautiful music for us from 3pm next Sunday afternoon.
$10 at the door. Let me know if you are coming email@example.com or 0274515486.
We will follow the concert with a shared meal, for any one who wants to stay and catch up with Celia while she is in NZ. Celia has been away from Palmerston North a good few years now, but she was a very strong influence on the music scene here.
Celia performs traditional instrumental music on the Celtic harp. She is a former all-Ireland harp champion, with four albums to her credit.
Celia’s Minstrel harps are beautiful instruments, with a superb tone, made by Kim Webby from New Zealand native timbers
