Legal Tender are a band that have been playing for us since the beginning, about 13 years ago.
They always draw a good crowd and have a loyal following.
This will be their 2nd appearance this year as they also played in the very successful Duos evening at the beginning of the year.
They are a country based band, with great vocals and a good selection of songs
“Legal Tender ’ the duo of Ian and Moira Campbell have been performing an eclectic mix of Rural/folk covers and originals around New Zealand for more years than they care to remember. They frequently collaborated with other kiwi musicians including various members of the Hamilton County Bluegrass Band , Bullfrog Rata, The Andrew London trio, Wayne Mason, and others. They feature regularly at various country/folk festivals and concerts around New Zealand. With their blend of alt/country/folk covers and their own down-home original songs they have entertained audiences from the Bay of Islands to the Deep South.
Sensitive arrangements of songs by various Americana artists including Guy Clarke, Hank Williams, Holly Williams, Gillian Welsh and Lorri Mckenna are rendered with earthy integrity and powerful vocal harmonies.
