Monty Bevins // Lovers Again from Shannon Aroha on Vimeo.

NZ’s favourite minstrel Monty Bevins is coming to Raglan!
Monty’s been traversing with no fixed abode for the last 5 years performing his folk/roots/soul to small communities throughout Aotearoa.

Monty’s the opposite of that shy bedroom artist who finds performing live painful, it’s where he’s most comfortable, sharing intimately and connecting in the real world with humans who feel, cry, reminisce and laugh, together. When the live experience clicks, drawing neighbours, strangers, lovers, travellers, introverts and extroverts in to a hub where they have the time to mingle and deepen for a moment, it’s a beautiful thing to be a part of.

With a slowness and a willingness to go in, notice detail, and to listen carefully to peoples stories, Monty’s life is full of interesting people and experiences, and when a story arises that he cares enough about, a groove to house the emotion is matched, and up to the surface rises another meaningful song distilled for the listener.

“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.
