Where will the Rhodes brothers supersonic picking go next? The answer will be right in front of us, as they unite with some of New Zealand’s top musical talent and You, Me, Everybody (YME) embark on their Southern Sky album tour.
The album will be released on 29 January (Auckland Folk Festival) and is a Tui Finalist, and we are the first date on the tour schedule straight after Kiwigrass.
Ron Barber of The Hook, calls this a virtuoso ensemble, and it is an apt label, as Nat Torkington’s banjo licks sync perfectly with the extraordinary mandolin and guitar of Sam and Laurence Frangos-Rhodes. Meanwhile, James Geluk underpins the sound with spider-like fingers and bass technique that occupies its own higher plane.
On top of all that, Kim Bonnington says she comes to the band with a heart of pure country, and her vocal flair provides a contrast, warmth and harmony that completes the unique line-up.
Don’t miss their Auckland two-set concert at the Auckland Bluegrass Club.
