Orokonui events

The Orokonui Ecosanctuary is delighted to have the legendary Delaney Davidson perform in the Visitor Centre. A must see event, Delaney is described as "The Louvin Brothers meet Billie Holiday." Delaney was recently nominated for the Apra Silver Scroll songwriting awards in the top five songs for 2011.

The internationally renowned songwriter tours New Zealand for the last time before heading to Europe. Nicola Russell, of Sunday Star Times says “On stage he tells those stories with an authenticity and jaw-dropping talent, layering guitar, harmonica, drums, voice and guitar through a loop pedal to create a unique sound he calls "folk jump noir". There is a force and rawness to Davidson's performance that reflects the depth of feeling.”

Joined by Marlon Williams (from the country crooning Unfaithful Ways) and Charlotte Ivey (from the stark folk of Tiny Lies) they create their own weave of harmonies - haunted, beautiful and classic. These three unique performers have worked before in the Harbour Union, but this time bring a special mix of country, folk and murder ballad to Blueskin Bay.

The performance will be held in the Ecosanctuary’s stunning Visitor Centre which has a fully licensed cafe overlooking Blueskin Bay. Tickets are limited so book early. Phone 482 1755, email info@orokonui.org.nz or book through our website orokonui.org.nz. Doors open at 5.30pm. Tickets $15. Proceeds to bring Takahe to Otago!
