Mike Garner 6pm Saturday Nov 11 – The multi talented Mike Garner brings you experience from all over the world. Most recently Mike has released digital single “Ricochet” (Sep 2017) featuring the powerful Chicago style harmonica of Neil Billington. Nice work guys.
Mike Garner has lived in New Zealand since 1988 and is one of NZ’s most experienced blues performers. During that time he has released six albums and performed in the UK, Italy, Germany, Australia, New Caledonia, Japan, and the Cook Islands.
He was the opening act for the 2010 Mission Estate concert and in 2011 a documentary – “Kathmandu Blues” – was made by respected New Zealand filmmaker Costa Botes about Mike’s journey to Nepal to play at the Kathmandu Blues Festival.
In addition to being a fine singer and multi-instrumentalist (guitar is his first instrument) Mike is one of the country’s most respected blues songwriters. A song from his 2007 Cad’s Alley album, “Louisiana Hurricane”, won 3rd place at Nashville’s International Song Competition in the Americana, section – the only finalist from the entire southern hemisphere!
