Delgirl

As much at home in the cafes and bars of the city as the pubs and halls of small-town New Zealand, Delgirl’s disarming talent shines through and invites even the most jaded soul to stop, look and listen.

Erin Morton - guitar, trumpet, ukulele, vocals
Lynn Vare - percussion, snare drum, tenor ukulele, banjo, vocals
John Dodd - double bass, vocals

Ask Tui award-winning band Delgirl to describe their sound and they’ll scratch around for the right words. Acoustic, country-blues? Harmony-rich folk-reggae fusion? ‘It is what it is’, they say. Ask them to play, and their songs do the talking, revealing musical roots nourished by the warm waters of the tropics, the cool mountain streams of North America and the fertile soils of their New Zealand homeland.

These multi-instrumentalist, singer-songwriters from Dunedin play roots music, bedded in tradition but speaking of today’s laughs, loves and losses in one clear voice. As performers they slip quietly into the living room of the soul, warming it with their unaffected charm. Fluid, luminous voices meld with guitar, ukulele, banjo and stand-up bass in songs that swing with sweet-tempered ease.

‘Beauty and fragility, romance and regret, love and loss. Delgirl’s music aches and exalts in places we’ve all been.’ - Chris Chilton, Southland Times

Hear local band Certé at the Granary Festival Cafe at Founders Heritage Park from 5pm, no charge.

Nelson Arts Festival, 7 - 24 October 2011
