This will be a special performance from Acacia, Rosie and Sean O'Connor, dedicated to their mother and wife, Amanda, who passed away in November last year.
They offer beautiful voices and harmonies, an eclectic range of great original songs plus a few covers with guitar, violin, recorder, piano and percussion. The O'Connors toured NZ, the US, Canada, Europe and the UK as a family band (plus one) as “Lava” in 2011, developing the girls' performance experience and honing their songs to fine performance pieces. Their recent CD, “Dream, Love, Dare” featuring Amanda's lead vocals will be available, along with other recordings.
Support act: Unresolved As…!
Supporting The O’Connor Family will be the inconclusively named Wellington trio Unresolved as…! - Niels Gedge (vocals, guitar and octave mandolin), Marian Carter (vocals, clarinet, recorders, mandolin) and Roger Metcalfe (Souzaphone). Why Unresolved as…!? Because while the band is still figuring whether to play blues, trad jazz, spirituals, country, Leonard Cohen, or Niels Gedge originals. They play the lot, with verve and feeling.
