Caitlin Smith and Paul Symons will be playing some of their original songs at the Kumeu Arts Centre. So grab a bottle of wine and spend the evening listening to great original music.

Caitlin is one of Auckland's best-known jazz vocalists, regularly seen out working at venues like all over the city. Some of you may not know that she writes great songs as well, which you will hear during her performance. Caitlin has the ability to draw her audience into the songs and hold them in the palm of her hand. In 1997 she joined up with guitarists Steve Gerrish and Graeme Webb to form The Fondue Set. In addition to regular gigs around Auckland, the group produced three albums. She has also performed as The Caitlin Smith Trio or Quartet and participates in other events with a variety of artists.

Paul Symons lives in Kumeu. He played his first gig in his late teens in Dunedin. Paul caught the bug, gigging solo around Dunedin & Otago, writing songs, & recording a demo EP. He decided to maximize the ‘Bluesness’ of life by acquiring a vintage Bedford schoolbus & heading off in a never-ending spiral around the South & occasionally the North island, playing pubs, ski fields, motorcycle rallies & festivals. Along the way holding down the job as oilrig worker, gardener, painter, wharfie, builder, sawmill & dump truck driver (strictly for the ‘Johnny-Cashness’). The ever-expanding tour came to a welcome halt in Auckland in the mid-90s & the house bus was tethered.

His first album “Spaceman” was released in 2005 to a warm response. Time was spent fronting & playing slide with legendry Westy party-band “The Dusters”, playing pedal-steel with alt-country combo “Too Far Gone” & playing original music with Lott Larson in “F3” (the Fickle Finger of Fate). Then, as fate would have it, Lott joined Paul Symons in February 2011 to make the“Shooting Stars” album at Wellington’s Braeburn Studio with drummer Des Mallon. Planning underway for getting a bit more and making some ruckus. Soon as Paul finishes the rebuild on the Schoolbus.
