Trio to perform Mulled Wine Series concert
Andrew London, front man and songwriter of the band Hot Club Sandwich, will open the 2013 Mulled Wine Series in Paekakariki this Saturday with his Andrew London Trio.
He will draw on a canon of work that includes both Hot Club Sandwich and Kapiti country five-piece The Cattle- stops, and will introduce a few new songs.
The other trio members are Kirsten London on bass, and ex-Hot Club Sandwich saxophonist Nils Olsen.
The Mulled Wine Concert Series, organised by Wellington pianist Mary Gow, has been running in Paekakariki since 2008. Mainly classical in nature, it has been hailed by critics as a noteworthy addition to the Wellington music scene.
‘‘We always like to start our year with a bang and this year is no exception,’’ says Gow.
‘‘Hot Club Sandwich got a great reception when they played here last and we are sure that this slightly different lineup will prove just as popular.’’
Andrew London Trio, Paekakariki Memorial Hall, The Parade, Paekakariki, January 26, 7pm. Tickets $ 20 from firstname.lastname@example.org and Magpie at Paremata.
