Darren Watson – One Voice, One Guitar, The Blues
Saturday, 27 September 2014 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm
Wellington-based bluesman Darren Watson is bringing his powerful, original music to Paekakariki again!
Darren has been a hot topic in the national news recently with his politically charged single ‘Planet Key‘, which reached number 5 on the Top 20 NZ Singles Chart before the Electoral Commission advised that they believed it was an ‘election programme’ and even an ‘election advertisement’ and the song was effectively removed from all airplay and sales online and on TV and radio. It is hoped a decision in the High Court will allow Darren to sell his work again and have it broadcast.
But of course Darren is about more than politics and he is promising an intimate experience with classic blues from the 1920s, 30s, 40s, and 50s, along with a bunch of his award-winning original tunes.
Support for the evening will be Matt Hay & Clint Meech playing Matt’s fine original Americana based material.
There will be limited door sales at $25 only if the show is not sold out online prior.
