This is the final ever concert by the Andrew London Trio, featuring Nils Olsen, performing their own satirical kiwiana music.

Note - to book for this event, please email bluegrass@xtra.co.nz before the day of the concert.

Saxophonist Nils Olsen joined Terry Crayford and Andrew London’s Hot Club Sandwich trio around 2006, at which point the HCS ‘revolving door’ policy towards its third member was very quickly abandoned.

His dexterity and versatility on both sax, flute and clarinet, along with his strong vocal skills made him indispensable and he contributed to four of Hot Club Sandwich’s nine albums before relocating to Germany in 2009. The trio also made forays to Australia and Norfolk Island during this time and completed several nationwide ‘Arts on Tour’ concert tours throughout New Zealand. In 2010 Nils was flown from Hamburg to join HCS in Saudi Arabia for a series of engagements at the NZ Embassy.

He returned to New Zealand in 2012 and quickly picked up where he left off with the newly formed ‘Andrew London Trio’, who have since recorded six albums and travelled extensively up and down NZ, to Australia, the Pacific islands and Indonesia on cruise ships, and to Norfolk Island each year for the Island’s Jazz Festival. Contacts made there over the last few years have resulted in a series of engagements to be fulfilled in the Melbourne area in late June of 2019, from where Nils will once again fly to Germany to rejoin his family - this time indefinitely.

Andrew and Kirsten are obviously saddened by his imminent departure and keen to celebrate the ‘Olsen years’ with a send-off performance of their favourite tunes at the Wellington Bluegrass Society on Saturday June 8th. The audience can look forward to a mix of Andrew’s cynical and comedic social commentary, and some well-loved standards from their 2018 album ‘Standard Deviations’.
