Country music legends Eddie Low and and Kevin Greaves have travelled the world entertaining and now they are coming to Warkworth RSA, on Saturday April 8.
The singers have been working together since touring in the Highway of Legends show, after they returned to New Zealand in 2008 following international tours.
“We got to know each other well and gained a mutual respect for each other’s stage shows and how they would make a great blend,” Kevin says.
The Warkworth show is part of a North Island tour and will include a mix of old and new country songs, Eddie’s hit songs, and covers of Elvis Presley, Marty Robbins and Roy Orbison.
The current tour follows on from two weeks of sold out shows in Australia, including the Tamworth Country Music Festival, where Eddie is a Tamworth Hands of Fame artist.
Eddie Low has spent 40 years touring the world. He was born blind and spent many years in the Auckland Blind Institute, where he learned to play instruments. He left New Zealand to seek fame in Australia in 1964, aged 21, and has performed and toured with Johnny Cash, Charlie Pride, Buck Owens, Tom T. Hall, Freddie Fender, Kenny Rogers and many more.
Eddie was recognised for his services to music with a NZ Order of Merit in 2006.
He now lives in Christchurch and is recording a new duets album, ‘Eddie Low With’. Kevin will feature on one song called ‘Small, Small World’.
Eddie was friends with Kevin’s late father, top country recording artist Rusty Greaves. Kevin performed on-stage as a five-year-old and started his professional career when he was 14.
He moved to Nashville in 1993, where two of his songs hit the charts and he has performed all over the US.
Kevin’s accolades include NZ Variety Artist Awards for Top Male Artist and the Agnew Award for Best Entertainer, Comedy Award of 2008, and a Living Legend Award.
