Victoria Girling-Butcher (from Lucid 3)


Victoria Girling-Butcher (from Lucid 3) MATaR Charlotte Johansen

Temple Thursday May 22 8pm

If you want to see some great, unique acoustic performances come long to this great lineup of musicians this special NZ Music Month event.

Victoria Girling-Butcher has been writing, performing and recording music throughout New Zealand for the last six years. After completing a diploma at the School of Music in Nelson she concentrated on performances in Dunedin and Wellington before moving to Auckland. Although she had classical voice training, her song-writing experience has lead her to develop her own unique singing style. If her guitar playing is unconventional it's largely because she's self-taught and enjoys experimenting with alternative tunings.

Victoria's also interested in unconventional ( there's that word again) use of language. Not many people "run down the keys in denim jeans " !

At varsity she was drawn to studies in English, Literature and Anthropology which all makes perfect sense given that she describes herself above all as an avid people-watcher and question-asker. More at www.lucid3.com
