Zephyr Wills is a classical and folk musician from Aotearoa, New Zealand. Completing his Bachelor of Music Hons in viola performance at the New Zealand School of Music in 2021, Zephyr has since been studying at Penn State in the USA as a Graduate Assistant to Professor Timothy Deighton.


Zephyr plans to pursue further study in Europe and has received scholarship offers from the Royal College of Music in London, and the Guildhall School of Music. As a folk musician, he continues to perform all over Europe, New Zealand, and the US, and was recently announced as one of the top ten applicants of 600 for the prestigious Bob Dylan Songwriting Center Fellowship.


The Handsome Giants:  

The Handsome Giants aka Hurricane Shayn Wills and Freddy Limbert, are two of the most experienced players in the country.  Between them they have played support for; John Hammond Jnr, BB King, Albert King, Canned Heat, Robert Cray, Junior Wells, Duke Robillard, and The Amazing Rhythm Aces.


They have developed their own musical style with a more raw, authentic sound based on Blues, R&B and Rock’n’roll, and put together a dynamite show to go with it. Because they draw from several traditional musical genres, the Handsome Giants have something for all lovers of music, of all ages. Fans of the sixties will recognise the power and energy; Blues enthusiasts will love the intricacy, yet simplicity of the musicianship. Beyond genres, this music is about good times – and having fun!
