World Buskers Festival Media Release: iSite Late Night


SCIRT WORLD BUSKERS FESTIVAL presents:

iSite LATE NIGHT WITH THE BUSKERS

Thursday 17 - Saturday 26 January

A late night mix of comedy, cabaret and circus! Hosted by Wilson Dixon, with Justine Smith and special guest appearances by some of your favourite festival acts each night.


Wilson Dixon (MC)
Born Wilson F. Dixon in 1969 in Cripple Creek, Colorado - a beautiful part of the world if you like rusted out cars, mountains, and waiting for nothing to happen. The F in his name didn't actually stand for anything, so he dropped it when he turned 12.

A country music legend, Wilson Dixon’s melodic philosophies on life have seen him become one of the most loved characters on the Australian, UK and NZ circuit.

Wilson’s 1st album, “Wilson Dixon’s Greatest Hits” received massive success with 3 singles from that album topping the NZ iTunes Top 100 Comedy Songs in 2010 – “Never” #1, “Philosophy” #1, “The Mirror” #2. Excerpts from this album have also featured on ABC Radio in Australia, across commercial radio in NZ and in the UK.

Wilson released his second album “Introducing Wilson Dixon” which features one of his biggest hits “Life” and includes favourites “The Boss” and “Sticks and Stones”.

“Simply sensational and utterly unmissable...” tvnz.co.nz, 2011 NZ International Comedy Festival.

“... an object lesson in intelligent understated comedy…” Sunday Age, Aust.

“... deadpan delivery of some of the funniest songs you’ll ever hear…” Time Out, UK

Gordon Campbell: Classics - Tales From Moominvalley
Can’t speak for the reading end of it but the Moomins ( or maybe the story about Margaret Wise Brown) were the most enjoyable subject to think about and write about during these whole first 50 issues of Werewolf. For that reason – and because the Moomins always reward re-reading – I’ve decided to reprint it. The only added element is a link to an interesting hour long documentary about Tove Jansson. More>>
