Treefrogs, Oh treefrogs Oh …

Treefrogs, goats, antelopes, bison and greenfinch may sound like an unlikely combination of creatures to find together in one room. Wellington composer, Treefrog, will bring them together, at least nominally, along with a plethora of weird and wonderful musical acts, in a Fringe show at Happy from 21-26 February. “It’s a take on the old fashioned community variety show, but it’s a pretty quirky take”, says Treefrog.

The show will feature members of Amalgam, the group that won Best Music Prize for the juicy Meatworks at Fringe 2001. Individual acts, which will vary from night to night, will include performances from up-and-coming throat singer, Jonny Marks, whisky fuelled flights of fancy from aspiring politician, Michael Appleby, and Nelson-based wandering minstrel, Roger Sanders.
