Gumboot Tango **CANCELLLED**
Time & Location
About The Event
**CANCELLLED** The Katikati Folk Club brings you Gumboot Tango.
Gumboot Tango present songs that tell something of New Zealand's special heritage, from the daggy and quirky through classic pop and rock to original songs,
An acoustic combo celebrating New Zealand songs and songwriters with farmyard-infectious humour guaranteed to put a smile on your feet and the swing back in a Taranaki gate. Good-time home-grown music; from rustic roots and big-smoke blues to regional originals and classic Kiwi rock. Foot-tapping ditties from the family knee and from the cowshed wireless at milking time… songs from old 78s and sing-alongs, from back-country roads, the bush and the big smoke. In their 26 year existence, Gumboot Tango have performed at Taranaki Festival of the Arts, the Beehive, WOMAD 99, music festivals – and many many more folk club and gigs all over New Zealand (not forgetting the Annual Great Urenui School Possum Hunt). The band comprises Mike Harding on six medium strings, Janet Muggeridge on eight little strings and Steve Muggeridge on the four big’uns; Wayne Morris hits, kicks and thimble-strums stuff… guitar, mandolin, bass and drums. Gumboot Tango: an earthy yet sophisticated ethereal musical experience. Seriously good home-grown musical fun. Don’t miss them!
