There’ll be an abundance of family talent on display when The Trenwiths appear as guests at the Auckland Bluegrass Club in February.
If you go to Kiwigrass you’ll get a taste of this family talent, and you are sure to want second helpings from Paul, Sam, and Tim Trenwith.
Yes, it is the Paul Trenwith, widely admired for his banjo playing and host of the popular Back Porch Bluegrass podcast and radio show. Paul has been picking banjo since the mid-1960’s with the Hamilton County Bluegrass Band, appearing throughout New Zealand, Australia and at bluegrass festivals in the USA
The talent rubbed off on his sons. Sam is now a well-known music teacher, performer and talented song-writer, and he and his brother Tim have performed music together all their lives, most recently in bands Radiator and Late 80’s Mercedes. Tim also plays in the Hamilton County Bluegrass Band with his dad.
Together, these musicians play a unique brand of music that incorporates Sam’s great songs and driving guitar playing; Tim’s superb bass-playing and fine vocal harmonies, and Paul’s powerful banjo picking. Featuring songs either written by Sam or drawn from a wide repertoire of popular music, the group plays music for all age groups with the confidence that only comes from a lifetime of playing music together.
This is going to be too good too miss.
