Mark Laurent

Martha & Brenda have been great friends and musical buddies for years, but until now they hadn’t performed as a duo. This Saturday is a rare opportunity to hear their self-penned mix of Americana and folk, using guitars, mandolin and harmonies.

Since arriving from America in the 70's Martha has been an active part of the NZ acoustic music scene. She has collaborated with many others, in groups such as Gentle Annie, The Broccoli Sisters, Late Harvest, Too far Gone and Martha and the Back Seat Drivers. Her solo live performances are an opportunity to share her stories, with strong vocals and a rhythmic instrumental style, and words and music that come from the heart.

Brenda has been writing songs and playing guitar and mandolin since the 1970’s. She grew up near London (UK), but moved to Australia in 1974, where she was involved in the environment and anti-nuclear movements, for which she composed a number of songs. Since meeting Mark Laurent in Auckland in 1988, they have mostly performed together, touring throughout NZ, Australia and the UK, recording several albums and appearing on radio and TV. Her most recent solo album, Box of Memories, was a finalist for the New Zealand Music Awards Best Folk Album in 2013.

Mark L will play an opening set & probably join M&B on a couple of songs. The koha teapot will be in its usual place on the counter & your contributions for the musicians are always gratefully accepted, thanks.
