Top al­ter­nate coun­try trio to play

The Tribune (NZ) - - WHAT'S ON -

When Kapiti band Le­gal Ten­der made their first ap­pear­ance at Gore’s Golden Guitar awards in 2015, they walked off with four Golden Guitars.

Part of New Zealand’s folk and coun­try mu­sic fes­ti­val scene for more years than they care to re­mem­ber, the trio also took out the best buskers tro­phy from more than 700 other New Zealand and Aus­tralian mu­sos in Gore’s aptly named Freeze Ya Bits Off street com­pe­ti­tion.

This Sat­ur­day, the hus­band and wife duo of Ian Camp­bell and Moira Howard-Camp­bell, with Cary­lann Martin bring their blend of orig­i­nals and al­ter­nate coun­try cov­ers to the Hokowhitu Bowl­ing Club.

Le­gal Ten­der last ap­peared in Manawatu to play a spe­cial Re­lay For Life fundraiser in Kairanga on Valen­tine’s Day. Last year, they per­formed a con­cert at the Globe, while Ian and Moira have ap­peared to­gether at a pre­vi­ous Al­liance Fran­caise Fete de la Musique cel­e­bra­tion in City Li­brary.

Bowl­ing club con­cert con­venor Steve Tol­ley said their mu­si­cian­ship is first class, un­der­pin­ning lyri­cal vo­cals and pow­er­ful har­monies.

‘‘This great band has played the Bent Horse­shoe several times with the type of mu­sic I re­ally en­joy, and they al­ways proved pop­u­lar.’’

Along with their trade­mark orig­i­nals, Le­gal Ten­der per­forms sen­si­tive ar­range­ments and in­ter­pre­ta­tions of songs by the likes of Guy Clarke, HankWil­liams, Gil­lian Welsh and Ali­son Krauss.

Book­ings for Le­gal Ten­der’s 7.30pm gig and dessert con­cert this Sat­ur­day are es­sen­tial, and can be made on 06 329 8808/ steve@ben­thorse­
