I'm not in that area myself, but there is a folk scene there. Kiwifolk will find it, and everything else around.
Sorry, haven't learned to do a Blicky.

Fossil, this request might interest you:-
Kapiti Musicians Wanted
We often get people looking for musicians to play events, parties etc.
particularly as we head into Summer, and sometimes the busier gigging
musicians need to find replacements. If you've got a gigging act and want
to make that known, contact Nigel. nigel@parry.net

Also this one:-
Kapiti OPEN MIC NIGHT - Thursday 1 December
After a fantastic open mic night last month, we've decided to do it all
again. All welcome down to our next Open Mic night which will be held on
Thursday 1 December, 7.30 pm at Lembas Café, Poplar Avenue, Raumati South.
For info contact Nigel. nigel@parry.net

Hiya Bill. Are you well?
Sandy's still is enjoying the antique banjo I bought from you at Whitby!
But, oh dear, don't say I will just miss you in NZ, as I will be there for four weeks from 22 Jan.
After the Auckland FF and a week's tour with the Shellback Chorus, I will be heading off to tour the southern part of the North Island, via Hamilton and Egmont National Park. I am hoping to get to the music (or music & song?) session at the Theosophical Hall, Church Street, Palmerstone North on Friday 10 Feb. Don't say you will be gone by then?
I then plan to go down to Wellington and then return to Auckland by Sat 18 Feb, probably via Hastings. Are there any particular folky events I should look out for Little Robyn or Gurney? I play the English concertina for several morris teams, as well as singing mostly traditional English songs.

Hope that you are going to Auckland Festival Jacko. It will be lovely to meet somone from the "old" Paltalk days when there was great singing till the early hours (UK time)most nights - and good conversation.

Most Shellbacks have sizeable non-seasong elements in their repetoires so some great song sessions should ensue over the weekend.

Thanks for the info, Little Robyn. I see that the Cat & Fiddle session is on the Kiwifolk site, which is very helpful. I hope to get there on Wed 16 Feb. Will you be there? Anyway, looking forward to meeting you at the Auckland FF.
Maybe catch up with you in Wellington, Fossil in NZ. My tour plan means that I will hopefully get be in Wellington on Sun 12 & Mon 13 Feb. I see there are folky events at the Wellington Acoustic Routes FC on the Sunday and Molly Malone's Bar on the Monday. Will I see you there?
I am certainly looking forward to the Auckland FF, Gurney! Hope to see you there.

Hi Robyn

Shellback party is arriving late afternoon Friday and are sharing 9 caravans on site. So find the encampment and you have a party of 21 including 2 NSP players and 7 mudcatters.Better than the national average.:0)

I will be attending the The NSP AGM on Saturday morning. We all have Shellback shirts but I don't know how many are bringing Mudcat shirts. Two of us have triple citizenship to include NSP.

We are all looking forward to a wonderful visit and to hearing and making lovely music and song.

I'll be there with a white Mitsubishi van with ladders on the roofrack, and Gurney on the window. Dark blue and beige tent. I usually camp in a little laarger with friends, so someone around there is likely to know me, but by my sometimes name, Chris Marden.
Mudcatters welcome at my camp. If anyone is travelling light, I can supply a pup tent.
If you can't find that, I'll possibly introduce Lew Black's session.

The Molly Mallone's crowd on a Monday night is a good one. I have been there several times on my visits to Wellington. Nice bunch of people of all skill levels.

The Bunker Folk Club over in Devonport (opposite Auckland) is a nice venue too.

Hi GUEST,
Re. your query about folk music in Plimmerton-Kapiti- Wellington area.
Levin Folk Club is only a short drive north of Kapiti.
We meet on the second Friday of each month, at 7:30pm.
Our audience varies between 50-90 people .
The address is: Horowhenua Scottish Society Hall, corner of Bartholomew Road and Middlesex Street, Levin.
Our club format is to have an open blackboard concert for the first half, (visitors - sign up to perform with the door reception -initially 2 songs for each blackboard performer, later reduced to one song to get through before supper time). We have a very good sound system and sound technician. Blackboard followed by free supper, then a guest performance .
Guests for our first meeting of 2006 - Feb 13th- are a group called Jade, from Wellington/Kapiti area. Jade are Dave Chadwick, Mike Dew, Peter Conway. They play mainly trad Irish and English folk - the line-up is acoustic guitars, mandolin and bouzouki and occasionally other bits and pieces with all members of the group doing vocals.
The Levin Folk Club also have a small practice session/workshop, very informal, in a member's home, on the fourth Friday of each month. Ask for details at the club night, if interested.

Just to let you know that we are touring New Zealand in Jan/Feb (see details

Wayne Gillespie and Nigel Gavin Tour Dates 2006:

Gillespie and Gavin have performed together since the mid 80's and celebrate
20 years of musical association with a South Island tour and a new album
"Live at the Bunker".

After a successful North Island tour last year promoting their acoustic
"Live at the Bunker" album, Sydney based singer-songwriter Wayne Gillespie
(Invercargill, Number 37, Ten Francs, Living in Exile) and NZ guitar
virtuoso Nigel Gavin (Jews Brothers, Nairobi Trio, Robert Fripp) are heading
South.

"On stage last night with Gavin.. Gillespie's talent shined through....the
two combined brilliantly...It was magic" Waikato Times.

"...dexterous playing...frisky flight..amusingly funky...mesopotamian
folk...yet this diversity is unified by Gavin's restraint and sure reading
of his melodic compass"The New Zealand Herald..

"Gillespie delivered an entertaining .and completely original show...his
voice is stunning in it's quality....a songlist that impressed with it's
overall standard" Nelson Evening Mail

if Levin are anything like 10 years ago then expect a friendly crowd. Any club that can welcome a stranger all in red by asking them to sing as they walk through the door has to be my kind of club.

Boy did I need an Oasis of happiness that year!
