Live & Local July

There’s another great line-up for this month’s Live & Local at Raglan Old School Arts Centre. We have the powerful vocals and song-writing of Joydah Mae, circus clowning from Damian Gordon, poetry from Lynne Wilkins and the Blister Sisters’ irreverent take on well-known songs.

Joydah Mae was discovered at NZ Spirit Festival singing at her stall. One of the festival directors heard her playing and asked her to sing at the closing ceremony. Joydah had previously kept her own compositions close to her heart, but the community responded with so much gratitude and love that from then she made a decision to continue to share her music, her voice and her heart for all.

Damian Gordon, a father figure in NZ Circus and co-owner of Circus Aotearoa, will present Wobbly Stools. Hilariously blending hat manipulation and clowning, this routine is the perfect mix of skill and laughter.

Local poet and songwriter Lynne Wilkins has appeared at Previous Live & Local concerts in her musical guise. For this show she will be sharing some of her poetry and spoken word pieces.

The Blister Sisters played in the Live & Local NZ Music Month Special. They’re back, ukuleles in hand (only just!), with a selection of their favourite songs. 

Live & Local is possible with the support of Waikato District Creative Communities, Raglan Light & Sound and Mark Frost (Bayley’s Real Estate).
