International troubadour and fingerstyle guitarist Andrew White returns to NZ direct from Spain.

“I wanted to immerse myself in the music and culture of the land that gave birth to the guitar in the sixteenth century. I wanted to walk the ancient cobbled street of Cadiz late at night and hear the flamenco street guitarists. I was craving new inspiration and I found it!”

Be prepared for an evening of awe-inspiring guitar, heart wrenching melodies and stories of travel, love and adventure.

A self-confessed disciple of the Muse, Andrew’s passion for finger-style guitar and song writing has taken him to all parts of the globe to tour and perform with many of the world’s finest musicians, including;

Tommy Emmanuel - Juan Martin - Ottmar Liebert - Antoine Dufour – Pierre Bensusan - Andy Mckee - Don Ross – Isaac Guillory - John Renbourne - The Corrs - Michelle Shocked - Clannad - John Martyn - Jerry Harrison (Talking Heads) - Janis Ian - Mary Black - Cappercaille - Eddie Reader - The Indigo Girls - Taj Mahal - The Strawbs - Shut Up Frank – Shriekback – Orchestral Manoevers in the Dark- Brendan Power - Seals and Crofts and many more.

“White’s style is a unique, soulful mix, and his guitar playing is extraordinary." -Rambles Art Magazine, U.K.

“White is one of those few blessed individuals who combines international-class finger-style guitar playing with great vocals and superb song- writing.” - Ian Melrose (Clannad)

"Andrew is a magical writer, listen to him with your heart.” - Tommy Emmanuel

“It is no stretch at all to describe Andrew White as the Art Tatum of the guitar.” – Stephen Pederson, Chronicle Herald, Canada
Andrew is a truly talented individual. His unique guitar style is a treat to the ears and his melodies and lyrics are infectious.” – Pam Sheyne (Songwriter “Genie in a Bottle” – Christina Aguilera)

‘Beautifully constructed guitar compositions that will not only inspire other musicians but also embrace the general listener in a warm glow…an aural palate you would associate with a Van Gogh.’- Fyfe on Folk, UK

‘Whether picking out a dainty traditional melody, tearing into a dirty blues workout, or artfully backing his tautly worded songs, his playing is continually embellished with layers of complementing nuance, both harmonic and textural, his singing is reminiscent of Sting at his darkly evocative best, only with a slightly hoarser, dustier edge.’ - The Scotsman UK

Tickets also available pre-sale at The Lotus Realm for $20. Door sales on the night $25.
