Tonight: Paddy Burgin, Jeff Abott, Dan Adams

Come along to Acoustic Pioneers TONIGHT to catch three very exciting acts:

Paddy Burgin is one of the finest luthiers NZ has to offer, and a 'wiz' on a range of stringed instruments. He will be playing songs from his brand new acoustic folk album.

Jeff Abott is a fun and sometimes quirky songwriter, who will have you nodding you head wondering how you never saw things so clearly before.

Dan Adams is a longtime stalwart in the Wellington music scene, and the songwriting force behind Wellington 10-piece We Like Trees.

Jump at the chance to see these guys play solo without any amps or mics. Also if you are a muso and you would like an opportunity to play at Acoustic Pioneers, please get in touch!


Acoustic Pioneers
@ Happy (cnr Vivian and Tory St)
Fortnightly on Tuesdays at 8:00pm sharp!
