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

Max Rashbrooke: Review - The NZSO And Nature

This was a lovely, varied concert with an obvious theme based on the natural world. It kicked off with Mendelssohn's sparkling Hebrides Overture, which had a wonderfully taut spring right from the start, and great colour from the woodwinds, especially the clarinets. More>>

Gordon Campbell: On Chuck Berry (And James Comey, And Bill English)

Back when many people were still treating rock’n’roll as a passing fad – was calypso going to be the new thing? – Chuck Berry knew that it had changed popular music forever. What is even more astonishing is that this 30-ish black r&b musician from a middle class family in St Louis could manage to recreate the world of white teenagers, at a time when the very notion of a “teenager” had just been invented.

Howard Davis Review:
The Baroque Fusion Of L'arpeggiata

Named after a toccata by German composer Girolamo Kapsberger, L'Arpeggiata produces its unmistakable sonority mainly from the resonance of plucked strings, creating a tightly-woven acoustic texture that is both idiosyncratic and immediately identifiable. Director Christina Pluhar engenders this distinctive tonality associated with the ensemble she founded in 2000 by inviting musicians and vocalists from around the world to collaborate on specific projects illuminated by her musicological research.
