Lon­don Trio re­turns

Hauraki Herald - - OUT & ABOUT -

The An­drew Lon­don Trio will re­turn for an­other per­for­mance at the Kauaeranga Hall on Oc­to­ber 8 at 2:30pm.

Au­di­ences loved An­drew Lon­don’s lyrics and laid-back singing along with ever so smooth Nils Olsen’s sax and clar­inet so­los.

Joined by An­drew’s wife Kirsten on bass, the trio pro­nounces on the trou­bles of mid­dle class, mid­dle aged, Mid­dle Earth con­cerns, de­liv­ered in a de­cep­tively in­nocu­ous 1940s swing style.

More than 20 years of tour­ing has en­abled song­writer Lon­don to gather ma­te­rial from the shearing sheds of South­land to the board­rooms of Auck­land, leav­ing him free to pro­nounce on pre­ten­tious so­cialites, mod­ern par­ent­hood, male in­se­cu­ri­ties, the In­ter­net, and much much more.

Ex­pect in­ter­mit­tent for­ays into folk, blues, coun­try and hip hop - plus poignancy and pathos from the Bea­tle-es­que har­monies pro­vided by Kirsten and Nils.

His trio has per­formed at fes­ti­vals in Aus­tralia and Nor­folk Is­land, and Saudi Ara­bia.
