Adam Piggott and Jayne Freeman PDF Print E-mail

We're delighted that UK folk and Americana songwriters Adam Piggott and Jayne Freeman are the main guests for the first concert in our new venue - Roseneath School Hall (down a short lane off Maida Vale). The guitar-ukulele duo have been showcasing their songwriting alongside fresh interpreations of often unexpected classic songs for 20 years.

Their sound has been described as a mix of Paul Simon, Leonard Cohen, Debbie Harry and Ry Cooder with a modern 'nouvelle vague' twist.

Wellington-based singer-songwriter Lost Bird, aka Ali Whitton, will support.

Entry $20/$15 members and students
