Iain "Mitch" Mitchell and Danny "Fingers" Tawhiti.
Mitch has been playing at folk clubs festivals, pubs and sessions for the last 54 years. He reckons he is getting the hang of it. Danny and himself formed the ‘12 th Bar Blues Band’ about 6 years ago on the West Coast, which morphed into the “Blues Brigade” (available for pubs, clubs, weddings, birthdays, anniversaries and Bar Mitzvahs with a very reasonable hourly rate). Mitch moved to Dunedin in January, while Danny moved to Ashburton, allowing them to continue playing as a duo.
Their acoustic set consists of Scottish and Irish Trad’, (with a few token English songs), songs from the sea, acoustic and (if allowed!) electric blues, plus more modern material and stories/opinions!
A good time is generally had by one and all (especially Mitch and Danny) who are indeed “legends in their own minds!”.
