Martha and the Backseat Drivers
When?Start time: Saturday 8:00pm (10 March)
End time: Saturday 11:00pm (10 March)
Martha Louise is well known in the NZ folk scene. With the Backseat Drivers she performed a magnificent set at the Auckland Folk Festival in January. There's a little bit folk / country / blues and a big bit Americana with full on harmonies and driving lead breaks wrapped around Martha’s vocals. The arrangements are a collaboration of all the drivers. Paul Symons adds his punchy rhythm & lead guitar and harmony vocals, Cam Bennett on Dobro and Weissenborn guitar and vocals adds the atmospheric slide blues touch and bass player Stuart Grimshaw on acoustic 5 string resonator bass and vocals has a strong connection to jazz and blues. Together they play the songs of contemporary acoustic music from the Austin sounds of Steve Earle to an acoustic version of a Bruce Springsteen classic, the haunting ballads of Gillian Welch to Martha’s own songs of family, loss and love played on guitar and dulcimer. A good time is had by all!
