Arts on Wednesday is into another season with blues-jazz pair the Ravenmavens, sparking some spring fever
Massey’s Arts on Wednesday programme is back up and running with another eclectic weekly programme.
For the next four weeks there’s live music, performance art from Massey artist in residence Stephen Bain, and live theatre.
Next Wednesday September 23 is the spring equinox – official first day of spring.
It falls to the Ravenmavens, the Wellington jazz and blues pairing of Cindy Muggeridge and Marian Carter, to shake a few spring tailfeathers in the Black Sheep Theatre on University Ave.
Long a part of the wider Wellington music scene, Cindy is a vocalist and keyboard player extraordinaire who has performed many a gig at the Celtic as a member of the Mojo Mama blues band with ex-pat Palmy-naut Laura Collins.
Originally from Manhattan, Marian is a multi-instrumentalist who blows a mean clarinet and sings her heart out. She may be remembered as a member of acoustic music outfit Unresolved as…! that played Tokomaru’s Bent Horseshoe back in 2013.
With a distinctive sound and a repertoire based around evergreen, bright and breezy, jazzy songs, these two fun-loving performers bring a sassy, happy-go-lucky approach to their music.
The free lunchtime gig in the Wool Building’s Black Sheep Theatre from 12.30 – 1.30pm should meet all the requirements of a ‘Welcome to Spring’ fling.
