This weeks special guests are Flora Knight and Sean Donald.

After kicking off 2016 by embarking on a two month square dance tour around New Zealand with North American stringband 'Fiddle Pie'... Flora Knight and Sean Donald are pairing it down and doing a few shows around the lower South Island this June.

Since their first hand shake, it wasn't long before the two slipped into a kindred musical bond and began singing close country harmonies and digging out dusty old fiddle tunes.

In respect of such things in common they have traveled and played in more than four countries together, fighting off bears, getting around however which way they can and doing their best to soak up a small part of a musical history through the communities that they encounter along the way.

The music that Sean and Flora play, stirs the parts of the body and soul that cant hide, the parts that stomp along and holler out when one feels it in their bones, music of a bygone era that resist the wear of time.

Whether it's a rip roaring ragtime fiddle tune, a mournful country classic, or a sweet and silly waltz played in an old dance hall, in a living room, on a street corner or by a bonfire Sean and Flora will play their weary hearts out for whoever'll take a minute to stop and listen.
