Live & Local- our popular series of showcases for local performers.

Our popular series of showcases for local performers continues this month with Ngaronoa Renata, Odhran Devlin and Ruth Power.

Odhrán (silent d!) hails from County Derry in the north of Ireland.  There, he had the fortune to work as a session bass player with some of the finest songwriters of the day.  While bass remains his first love, he has written a handful of songs over the years which he accompanies on acoustic guitar.  Most of his songs are narrative driven and based on his own experiences.  Odhran also plays songs by people he’s had the fortune to record with.  He enjoys sharing the stories of these songs and their writers as well.

After a decade playing in various ensembles spanning jazz, prog & synth rock (Ruthie Veronica, Death in Texas, Teamsquad), Ruth Power – the founder of online piano school, Piano Picnic – returns to her original love of atmospheric neo-classical in this second solo performance for Live & Local.

Ngaronoa Renata will showcase her Taonga Puoro Exploration: an exploration of sound using traditional and contemporary indigenous sounds, interwoven with story – Pūrakau .
