Gillian Boucher and Bob McNeill
The Whangateau Folk Club at the Whangateau Hall is cranking up again after multiple lockdowns.
On Friday, March 19, Gillian Boucher and Bob McNeill will be on stage to promote their 2019 album, Race for the Sun.
Club coordinator Jenine Abarbanel says these two award-winning musicians combine to create a magical experience deeply seeded in their passion for Scottish traditional music.
“Gillian is an exceptional fiddler and dancer from eastern Canada’s Scottish-infused Cape Breton Island, while Bob is an acclaimed guitarist, singer and songwriter from Scotland,” Jenine says.
The show starts at 7.30pm with a $15 entry fee.
Then, on the monthly club night on Monday March 29, the guest artists will be the folk-pop duo Looking for Alaska.
Aaron Gott and Amy Maynard have opened for the likes of Fly MY Pretties, Herbs and Tiny Ruins, and were a featured act at the Canterbury Folk Festival.
Doors open at 7pm, entry at the door $10.
