With The Skiffy Rivets, harmonies are not something used just for choruses, they are a full time job for the three hard-working vocalists. Rather, it is the audience who are likely to find themselves beefing up the choruses, as the Skiffy Rivets reach out with their unique blend of songs borrowed from Americana, bluegrass, folk, and swing.

This month the Levin Folk Club gets a special preview show before the Skiffy Rivets appearance at the Wellington Folk Festival at Labour Weekend.

Creating the fun musical blend are singers Holly Carrington, Sue Tearne, and Pete Parnham who also provides the backdrop of guitar and slide guitar. As the set progresses, guest Cathy Dyer will also add her upright bass to the mix.

A Skiffy Rivets set never dwells for long in one place, as they shift gears and genres effortlessly with songs that will move you, make you laugh, have you singing and tapping your toes and wishing you’d brought your dancing shoes.

The Skiffy Rivets' live studio CD Elbow Room has the same effect, with it becoming many listeners saying it is their favourite road trip CD - always making the miles go faster and putting a smile on their face.

Doors open at 7pm. Musicians wishing to play one song can speak to the compere at 7pm to see if there is room on the blackboard. Guests play after supper at approx. 9pm. Come along for a harmonious, acoustic night.
