Apr 12: LIVE & LOCAL at the Old School

Friday April 12 at Raglan Old School Arts Centre, 5 Stewart Street, Raglan. Upstairs in Whare Tapere.

Koha entry. Doors open at 7pm with Live & Local starting at 7.30pm. Bar open.

Our popular Live & Local featuring local performers continues.


April’s Live & Local presents another great mix of Raglan acts, this time with music and stories from Brian Wilson, Freddy Limbert and Ngaronoa Renata.


Ngaronoa Renata brings another Medicine For The People set. These are always something special and feature different accompanists each time.  A combination of pūrakau & oro (story-telling and sound), she will be sharing pūrakau and poetry accompanied with taonga pūoro and waiata.


Brian Wilson is making his first solo Live & Local appearance, having performed several times with ukulele group The Ragtimers and accompanied other acts with guitar and ukulele.  Self-described as an aging hippy, Brian says he’ll be playing “An eclectic range of songs, some you may have heard before, but you still may not recognise them!”


Over the past 40 years you may have seen Fredmo (Freddy Limbert) behind the drums or perhaps on double bass (yes, he did start very young indeed, as long-time locals can attest). Having performed with numerous artists and bands, including on international tours, Freddy has accumulated a unique approach to music. For Live & Local Freddy says he will be “Plucking some stringed instruments and singing some songs from his travels”.
