Delaney Davidson in carnival mode – ‘Magic Lightbox’ Tour
Do you remember the slide show of the traveller returned from oversea? Remember projecting slides onto a sheet pinned to the living room wall?
Blending live music and film, Arts Laureate Delaney Davidson gives us a glimpse of a forgotten time - dusty highways, old Europe, the ‘new world’ of the USA and New Zealand as you’ve never seen it before.
Fresh from the success of his recent European tour, Delaney presents ‘Magic Lightbox’ a show of old-time images combined with evocative music in Delaney Davidson’s homage to lost ways of storytelling.
Delaney Davidson was Artist Laureate of New Zealand in 2015. He is a three times winner of the NZ Country Music Song of the Year Award, was awarded NZ Country Music Album Of The Year (2013), a finalist for the coveted NZ Apra Silver Scroll Award, and Winner of One Man Band Competition in Zurich.
Initially inspired by the songs of Hank Williams and the Birthday Party, together with the performance styles of Johnny Cash and Buster Keaton, Delaney has synthesized his own unique persona. The guitar and harmonica have become his trademark, a small battered suitcase a props table for his magic show, looping sounds over each other to achieve that old-fashioned carnival tent sound.
