Niels Gedge at Raglan Old School Arts Centre
Saturday 12 November at 7.30pm $15. Door sales from 7.00pm. Cash bar and yummy eats.
Niels Gedge is a Wellington-based singer songwriter and fingerstyle guitarist.
Nielsâ€™ songs reflect a deep grounding in country, folk, blues and gospel styles, and an evening with Niels might range from Robert Burns to Tracey Chapman, to Hank Snow, as well as his own songs. Many of his songs draw on the landscapes of Aotearoa/New Zealand to tell stories of life and the echoes of lives past.
Niels performs in acoustic music and folk clubs, pubs, cafes and public events throughout the lower North Island and, increasingly, in other parts of New Zealand. His songs have been played on National Radio, and on Wellington regional community stations.
At his Raglan concert Neils will be joined by WilkieMac (Lynne Wilkins and Michael Mackinnon)
Niels most recent CD Mauiâ€™s Whale will be available at the Raglan Old School Arts Centre concert.
â€œIt’s a really enjoyable CD full of beautiful playing and personal yet universal songs that draw on timeless traditions of gospel, folk music and bluesâ€ Nick Bollinger, NZ Radio Broadcaster and Music journalist.
