Toru re-ignites a 25-year musical association between Denny Stanway-Young, James Wilkinson and Davy Stuart from Rua, The Two Jimmies, Hampster, String Wizardry and Claddagh respectively.

Toru combine dazzling string artistry with guitars, bouzouki, fiddle and percussion with stunning vocal arrangements paying tribute to their varied heritage and other New Zealand musical heroes. Toru cross borders of love, landscape, loss, friendship and heritage. Denny Stanway-Young’s performances are described as rich, expressive, beautifully arranged and musically powerful.

Both Denny and James have collaborated with legendary songwriters Mahinarangi Tocker and Shona Laing and Denny has been described as “the consummate singer…” “a voice you won’t soon forget.”

“A true ‘diva’ of song…” James Wilkinson is a virtuoso guitarist and fretless bassist who has been performing for over 30 years. As a singer-songwriter, guitarist, bassist, and composer, his work has straddled multiple genres such as Celtic, folk, blues and rock. For the past 15 years, Davy Stuart has been playing with harpist Helen Webby, the duo recording 3 CDs and extensively touring NZ and Australia, with nationwide tours for both Arts on Tour NZ and Chamber Music NZ.

This event will appeal to all ages and lovers of acoustic music. Open Hat Night!
