Hamilton News - - FRONT PAGE -

Kiwi mu­sic stal­wart and for­mer Mut­ton­birds front­man Don Mc­glashan is bring­ing his Free Flight tour to Cam­bridge and we’re of­fer­ing a fur­ther chance to win a dou­ble pass to his much-an­tic­i­pated show.

En­tries flooded in for our last com­pe­ti­tion, and no won­der. Mc­glashan is one of our most lauded singer/song­writ­ers with a body of work that cov­ers such no­table bands as Blam Blam Blam that gave us the likes of Don’t Fight It Mar­sha, It’s Big­ger Than Both Of Us that hit #17 on the charts and was deemed the best sin­gle of 1981 by Rip It Up Mag­a­zine and No De­pres­sion In New Zealand. The Front Lawn which de­liv­ered up the touch­ing and heart­felt Andy, writ­ten in mem­ory of Don’s late brother, and which was voted #82 in the Apra Top 100 Songs Of All Time List.

Then of course there is The Mut­ton­birds with such clas­sics as Do­min­ion Road, An­chor Me, In My Room, Na­ture, Gi­ant Friend, Pulled Along By Love, The Heater, A Thing Well Made and Welling­ton.

Don’t for­get his solo work which has seen him re­lease three al­bums — Warm Hand, Mar­vel­lous Year and the lat­est Lucky Stars, the ti­tle track from which is a real stun­ner.

Along the way he’s picked up two Apra Sil­ver Scroll Awards with An­chor Me and Bathe In The River. Wow!

They broke the mould when they made Don Mc­glashan!

Don will be joined by le­gendary NZ drum­mer/per­cus­sion­ist Chris O’con­nor who is known for his abil­ity to be able to coax mu­sic out of any imag­in­able ob­ject or sur­face!

Who knows what mys­tery, magic and per­haps a lit­tle may­hem will un­fold when these two hit the stage.

You will, but only if you’re there! Tick­ets from Eventfinda.co.nz
