Warratahs return to Nelson and the famous Boathouse
Playing all the hits of their 33 years on the road
This will sell out so be quick!
The songs of lead singer and guitarist Barty Saunders are etched into New Zealand’s landscape and this artistry was rewarded in 2016 with the Warratahs taking out Best Country Music album at the Gore Gold Guitars Awards with “Runaway Days”, an album the entered both NZ and Country charts in the Top 10. Their more recent double album “Drivin Wheel” is a unique collection of their songs and style since the bands beginnings in 1986.
For 33 years the band has traveled to and performed in 120 different urban centers and towns across the country.
The band appeared with Johnny Cash, June Carter Cash, Billy Joel, Lucinda Williams, Leanne Rimes amping other international stars.
Don’t miss a chance to hear Nik Browns hands of fire on fiddle as the Warratahs play Hands of my Heart, Maureen, Rescue Me, St Peters Rendezvous, Mount Victoria Rain, Taranaki and other classics.
Bring your dancing shoes and in the words of Elvis .... if you can’t find a partner, use a wooden chair
