Travel to Muriwai by Vintage Train and experience Rail Land in Te Whare Maumahara. Train leaves at 3pm and returns approx. 6:45pm.
Experience a journey of the mind, through song and story about NZ's on and off love affair with its passenger railway system.
Equal parts tragedy, comedy and personal memoir Rail Land weaves the songs of Anthonie Tonnon with custom material written for the show, including historical letters, notes on the NZ Railway systems and large scale NZ Rail posters.
"Tonnon peppers his sets with these kooky kinetic dramatic segues. It's captivating to watch. He layers sound turns the audience into his percussive backing track, dives from synth to guitar to keyboard. He's layering out a commentary on that future promised by yesteryear, where the rail was the way to go." JS Baron. The Hook.
This performance will appeal to RNZ Music Listeners, Don MaGlashen and The Chills followers, Rail Enthusiasts and everyone else.
