One of New Zealand’s best-known and beloved songwriters, Don McGlashan, takes to the road this Spring with an intimate solo show to road-test new material for a forthcoming solo album.
With a career that includes Blam Blam Blam, The Front Lawn, The Mutton Birds, and a pair of highly-acclaimed solo albums, Don shows no signs of slacking off, in fact he's been performing more and more in recent years.
Don opened for Crowded House on their 2008 US, European and Australian tours, and was a guest musician with the band. In 2009 he took part in Neil Finn’s Seven Worlds Collide project – collaborating on his own songs with Johnny Marr, and members of Wilco and Radiohead. In 2010 he featured on “Stroke”, the benefit/tribute album for Chris Knox that also includes Yo La Tengo, Lambchop, The Mountain Goats, Will Oldham and Lou Barlow. More recently he's collaborated live with the likes of Australian master-songwriter Paul Kelly and Brian Ritchie of The Violent Femmes, taken his solo show to sell-out audiences in London and New York, and re-formed The Mutton Birds for a hugely successful winery tour earlier this year.
