Award winning singer/songwriter Lawrence Arabia will perform at Leigh later this month.
Last year’s winner of the Tui Award for Best Alternative Album, Lawrence Arabia, will perform at Leigh Sawmill Cafe on Friday March 24.

Also on stage will be his band comprising Tom Watson on guitar and trumpet, Hayden Eastmond-Mein on bass and saxophone, Alistair Deverick on drums, and Jonathan Pearce on keyboards and guitar.

Lawrence’s fourth and most recent album, Absolute Truth, on Flying Nun Records, was the Tui Award recipient. His previous album, The Sparrow (2012) won a Tui for Best Male Solo Album, while Chant Darling (2009) won the Taite Music Prize, with the single Apple Pie Bed receiving the APRA Silver Scroll.

Lawrence and his band have performed hundreds of shows around the world over the past 10 years, including performances at the Royal Albert Hall, the Ryman Auditorium, Wembley Stadium and Auckland Town Hall.

Joining the Leigh show will be special guests Lips, whose song Everything To Me won the APRA Silver Scroll in 2012 for writer Stephanie Brown.

Presales for the show are available for $30 from undertheradar.co.nz
