The Ministry Of Folk presents: Where Water Meets, Sonia And Nigel And Hoop (triple-bill)


The Ministry of Folk is your alternative folk club featuring a variety of super-talented, nearly-acoustic acts in a beautiful historical hall in Mt Eden. Cabaret style seating and BYO drinks.

As usual The Ministry's regular house band, the banjo and fiddle wrangling 5-piece HOOP will MC the night and unveil some new songs in their set of folky pop tunes (check out Spotify for their latest EP, ‘This Year’).

Sonia and Nigel are a multi-cultural acoustic duo featuring French-American Paris-born Sonia Wilson on vocals & ukulele and Kiwi-American virtuoso musician Nigel Gavin on 7-string guitar. They weave French, Kiwi and American songs with their own original compositions and inspiration from their travels around the world.

Described as an ‘intricate, complex, but warm-hug kinda experience’, Where Water Meets are folk duo Emily Sheppard (violin/viola/vocals) and Yyan Ng (guitar/vocals). Touring New Zealand for the first time, they are bringing music to Ministry of Folk from their critically acclaimed first album River Islands, with songs and tunes inspired by the Tasmanian wilderness. They combine alternatively tuned guitars, violins and violas with ethereal vocals to create shimmering, visual worlds both Tasmanian and interstellar.

$25.00 ($20.00pp offer is available for groups of ten or more). Cabaret style seating and BYO drinks.
