Event Description

FLORA & SEAN

Flora Knight and Sean Donald are from different corners of the world - she’s a fiddle player from New Zealand who has previously played with The Eastern and The Lone Pine Specials; he's a guitar-picker raised in Canada playing in the All Day Breakfast Stringband.

Recipients of the 2017 New Zealand Gold Guitars Overall Runner Up award, including winning the ‘Traditional Country’ and ‘The Freeze Ya Bits of Busking’ sections, the pair formed a musical bond a couple of years ago and have dedicated themselves ever since to gathering stories, songs and fiddle tunes from small communities around the world.

The two met in Toronto before Flora moved to West Virginia to apprentice to an old-time musician there. Several months later they embarked on a pilgrimage of sorts through the Appalachian Mountains and then south to Cajun country.  Flora persuaded Sean to accompany her next on a square dancing music tour held in rural halls all over New Zealand, and he’s lived here ever since

Their self-titled ‘Flora and Sean’ debut record is made up of songs and tunes they’ve gleaned on travels around the US, Canada and Australasia, learning their music from a variety of sources – from mentors and older generation musicians, from those taking part in square dances and honky tonks, and from 78rpm records as well as their peers.

“…a superb set from Sean Donald and Flora Knight, fiddle and guitar, both singing. Close your eyes and it’s music from a crackling old American country and western radio show.” – North and South Magazine

USING THIS SITE

Its pretty straightforward.  When you sign up you'll be asked a few questions to make sure you're not a robot or some malevolent marketing tyrant somewhere exotic.

It will ask you for a picture - the site prefers JPG to all other formats.  However, you're not obliged to give one, and you'll be given a patchwork world image.  Quite fitting really!

If you've stopped getting emails from us (usually a news and events update every 2-3 weeks), its most likely you've changed your email address, and not told the site.  

You can update this by clicking on the little cog/Settings button (just above here, up by the photos of members) and this will take you to your page, and there's an option to change your email.
