Special Gala performance!
After an informal appearance at the Cardrona Festival The Wilding Pines were invited to perform at a private function at the former Baptist Chruch at Greendale near Christchurch. This concert was recorded and mixed down to a single album To celebrate the band are taking to the road in an arduous tour of Dunedin kicking off with a special gala performance at 50 Dundas.
The Wilding Pines Revue is a string band based around the instrumental talents of Read Hudson (Dobro & banjo), Steve Barkman ( guitar and mandolin) and Lawrence O'Callaghan (Dobro & guitar) and the songwriting of Richard Dingwall (guitar & mandolin). The group formed out of Wednesdy night sessions at Steve's place where the group jammed on old fiddle tunes, rags and blues. To this mix Richard brought his grab bag of songs.
This concert features new songs and tunes composed by Richard, Read and Lawrence and there will be special guest appearances from accordion maestro Jock Walton and the singer Pam Morrison.
