A concert with a difference takes place in Paekakariki on Saturday the 30th April, 8pm, St Peter’s Hall; Paekakariki. Fences Fall is a collaborative project by Kapiti musicians who have written songs inspired by the poetry of Michael O’Leary. Check out more information on his web site - http://www.earlofseacliff.co.nz/michael.htm
Musicians Kayte Edwards (the Green Parrots), Niels Gedge, Gilbert Haisman, Francis Mills, Brian Romeril (Pavlova) and Al Witham have reworked Michael’s poetry into fresh sounding compositions ranging through blues, jazz, folk, and country. Concert-goers will be treated to the first public performance of these songs as well as other material by the musicians.
