BAND FROM USA PLAYS AT KAUAERANGA HALL
Kauaeranga Music has much pleasure in bringing back guitarist Mark Mazengarb, joined by his American friends Joe K. Walsh on mandolin and Andrew VanNorstrand on fiddle. This will be a night of bluegrass, old time and swing music, featuring virtuosic instrumentals along with heartfelt songs and vocal harmonies.
Mazengarb is a kiwi guitarist who has been based in the USA for the past 7 years, touring full time with his guitar duo partner Loren Barrigar. He has performed and toured with some of the best guitarists in the world, including several tours with the great Tommy Emmanuel.
Now based in New Zealand, Mark's passion is to bring some of the finest musicians from the USA to New Zealand audiences. Most recently, Mark brought 'The Lonely Heartstring Band' out to NZ for a sold out tour, wowing audiences up and down the North Island. "It's really special for kiwis to get the chance to see such high calibre musicianship. It's not often that musicians of this quality get to come to NZ, especially to perform in such intimate venues." Mazengarb says.
Joe K. Walsh teaches mandolin at the prestigious Berkley School of Music when he is off the road, and Andrew was a child prodigy fiddle player, performing on the Prairie Home Companion Radio show at just 14 years old. This will be Andrew and Joe's first tour of New Zealand.
There is no doubting that this will be a very fine concert - an intimate evening of world-class acoustic music!
