Kiwi Country Pioneers presents three of NZ’s most respected and experienced country song writers. Gracing the stage will be RIANZ and APRA winning first lady of NZ country Donna Dean, gruff voiced country bluesman Greg Fleming and young contender to the crown Aaron Carpenter all with their respective bands. Expect some old favourites and some brand new material from some of the nation’s finest song writers.

Auckland based singer songwriter Donna Dean's last two album reviews by U.S Americana music magazine No Depression tell so much about this artist, making reference to Tom Waits, Bruce Springsteen, Joni Mitchell, John Prine and Bob Dylan, and calling her "a diamond among coal" who is "capable of getting attention with just an acoustic guitar and voice".

Greg Fleming is a singer/songwriter based in Auckland. Often cited as being a trailblazer of alt. country rock in New Zealand, Greg stands apart with an extensive and timeless body of work. His new album Forget the Past was produced by in-demand Auckland musician/producer Wayne Bell (Gin Wigmore, The Bads, Andrew Keoghan) and pairs Greg’s strongest set of songs yet with a new musical and sonic palette.

Aaron Carpenter has a gift for articulating the plight of the downtrodden and misunderstood. This insight keeps listeners riveted throughout as The Revelators report back on the lot of small-town lifers, neglected love veterans, and the invisible homeless with both sympathy and a burning curiosity. The Revelators are a veteran gaggle of hot shot musicians including Glenn Ross Campbell (of The Misunderstood and Juicy Lucy) who will be playing lap steel for both Aaron and Donna’s sets.

Don’t miss your chance to see all three classic New Zealand country legends in one intimate venue.
