Shindig: Wednesday 11 September 2019

Fiddler Dave Kahn and claw hammer banjo player David Ward (pictured) will be joined by bassist Eamon Edmundson-Wells to bring us Shindig.

Shindig: the fast and furious clawhammer banjo of David Ward, the lightning bow of fiddler Dave Khan, and bass whiz Eamon Edmundson-Wells. 

More electrifying than a spark plug lead, these guys will make your hair stand on end with their music. 

David Ward is a diversely creative guitarist and banjo player who composes for theatre and original projects. He has performed in numerous musical settings, touring extensively in NZ, Singapore, Australia, India, Germany and the U.S.A. 

Dave Kahn according to Famous Elsewhere website is “Ridiculously talented, he is also a modest presence on stage who can set the air alight with seemingly effortless playing, he also turns down the moods for hush-now intimacy.”

Meanwhile Eamon Edmundson-Wells has a bass CV that is long and varied, and can be summed up by saying he is simply one of those bassists everybody loves to have underpin their band.

Don’t miss this trio formed from the cream of New Zealand talent.
