Auckland concert launch of Small Holes in the Silence CD – I’ve heard a few tracks and they’re tremendous

Manhire Auckland Concert flier

‘The approach taken by Bill, Norman, Hannah and Colin has been one that seeks to marry the words and music as seamlessly as possible. Performances include readings of the poems by Bill, sometimes accompanied by an anecdote or brief explanation to illuminate the poem’s genesis followed by performances of the poems as songs. Hannah’s nuanced interpretation of these words is complemented by Colin’s obligatos and solos and as a trio (with Norman at the piano) the three make delicate music that draws from European jazz, from the folk traditions of Great Britain and New Zealand, and from popular song.’
