Dave Dob­byn is com­ing to town


Kiwi mu­sic icon Dave Dob­byn will play in Feild­ing next Fri­day, April 15.

Feild­ing Pro­mo­tion picked up the gig af­ter a Whanganui venue fell though.

Feild­ing Pro­mo­tion project man­ager Raewyn Loader says it’s ex­cit­ing news.

An in­vi­ta­tion to treat Dob­byn and his entourage to a ru­ral lunch at the town’s Farm­ers’ Mar­ket, show­cas­ing its fresh lo­cal pro­duce was ac­cepted, so prepa­ra­tions are un­der­way to pull out the red car­pet, Raewyn says.

Co­in­ci­den­tally, Dob­byn’s visit takes place on the Mar­ket’s 11th birth­day. ‘‘[It] will be the ic­ing on the cake.’’ The celebrity lunch will be at mid­day in Manch­ester Square fol­lowed by an op­por­tu­nity for au­to­graphs.

‘‘We in­vite ev­ery­one to come along to the Mar­ket for a civic wel­come,’’ Raewyn says.

The mu­si­cian’s ap­pear­ance is part of a tour to pro­mote his new vinyl re­lease, Har­mony House.

For the 7.30pm show at the Civic Cen­tre, Dob­byn and his band will be joined by young up-and-com­ing Welling­ton per­former, 21-year-old Jesse Shee­han.

The lim­ited tick­ets cost $30 and can be ob­tained from Palmer­ston North i-Site or Feild­ing In­for­ma­tion Cen­tre.
