Wellington’s harmonica virtuoso, Neil Billington, teams up with Tauranga bluesman Mike Garner for a show of old-time and Chicago blues, featuring the phenomenal harmonica playing of Billington with Garner’s acoustic and slide guitars.
They toured Japan with this show in 2014, 2015 and 2016, including the prestigious “Live Magic” Festival in Tokyo, 2016.
Neil Billington, from Wellington, is one of NZ's finest exponent of the blues harmonica, able to cover the blues greats, on acoustic or amplified harmonica. Neil was invited by the Hohner company, the world's leading harmonica manufacturer, to be a guest star performer at the company's Tokyo festival earlier in 2018, where he demonstrated his skills on both the blues harp and the chromatic harmonica - a rare accolade.
Mike Garner is a well known blues singer and songwriter with nearly 40 years experience. He has performed extensively in festivals in both Australia and here in New Zealand as well as touring the UK, Europe, Japan, Australia, Nepal and the Pacific.
