Adam McGrath, Lead singer and songwriter from mythical Christchurch folk/country band The Eastern, returns again to the Oamaru Opera House as part of his Autumn ‘Ragged Ramble’ Tour.

Described by influential country magazine No Depression as “One of the best modern roots acts from any country period”, by the NZ Herald as “NZ’s toughest minded songwriter” and by Radio NZ National as a “National Treasure”, an Adam McGrath show is designed to reach your heart, head and boots.

A folk singer in the truest, traditional sense but one who’s songs speak to the times we find ourselves in and the people whom we share them with. A virtual lifetime spent on the road around NZ and everywhere beyond, McGrath sees his job as to pick up the stories he finds, siphon them down to the bone and the heart and bring them around to the next place and the next.

He’s toured and played with everyone from Fleetwood Mac to Steve Earle to Paul Kelly to Old Crow Medicine Show and many, many more, Barry Saunders from The Warratahs simply described him as “The truth”.

A people's player with a blue-collar work ethic McGrath treats any opportunity to play, big or small, as a gift which he intends to earn. He looks ever forward to returning to Oamaru after his last well received show there in the spring.

The Oamaru Opera House TicketDirect box office is open Monday to Friday 10am to 4pm and Saturday 12pm to 1pm. The box office and the Opera House Cafe & Bar is open 1 hour prior to the show commencing and during interval.

Please call 03 433 0770 if you require wheelchair seating.
