Nov 12: LIVE & LOCAL

LIVE & LOCAL FRI NOV 11 at Raglan Old School Arts Centre – upstairs in Whare Tapere
Koha entry, 7.30pm, doors 7pm

As of November, the Live & Local concerts move to the second Friday of the month, so mark that date from here on in. Always a great night out, you’re assured of the pick of Raglan’s talented singer-songwriters, poets, comedians and more. And all for koha entry!

Nicky Keys

Each month we showcase three local acts: professionals and amateurs, newbies and old hands. This month sees the return of Nicky Keys. Nicky played Live & Local last year; known as a keyboard wizard he also has a great line in humorous tales and was a very popular act last time he appeared. A long-time resident of Raglan, Nicky has over 25 years of experience in the music industry playing keyboards for bands such as Cornerstone Roots, Lost Tribe Aotearoa and Native Sons.

November’s Live & Local will also feature Tim Grimes. Tim will be playing songs that he wrote. On a guitar and a ukelele. Tunes from North-Western Europe, by boat (no experience with sailing). In praise of the sea and other things greater than he.

And for something a bit different, we have an eclectic mix of circus acts by three of Raglan’s circus professionals – Evelyn Coulson, Irene Goed and Nick Davies

Nick Davies

Evelyn is a circus artist specialising in all things circular – especially hula hoop. Evelyn has been involved in the New Zealand circus community for a decade and performing professionally for the past seven years. She has performed hula hoop across New Zealand, Australia, Canada and Central America. Now that she is based in Raglan, she hosts a weekly hula hoop class on Wednesdays at the Old School Arts Centre and is also a tutor at the local circus and dance studio – Freedom2Fly.

For more fun with circular objects, Nick Davies will perform a hat juggling act. And after years of performing mainly aerials Irene Goed from Circus Aotearoa is back on the ground manipulating objects with hands and feet. She has put a contemporary twist to a traditional foot juggling routine.

We also have young singer-songwriter Luna De La Cruz playing a short set. Luna has lived in Whaingaroa all her life and has her been playing guitar and keyboard for a few years and has been singing from a young age. She loves surfing, dancing, drama, art and of course, music.
