The Sou’Westers have performed gigs last year from Northland to Nelson to Gympie Music Muster in Australia, where they booked again to perform in August.
On the 31st of May they come to the coast to perform at The Old Lodge theatre in a small intimate concert. Sou’Wester member Aly Cook says “The Old Lodge Theatre is a lovely venue, we always love to come to the coast for Its beauty, inspiration & it’s people, we have sold a lot of CDs on the coast and I hope people will book to come see us perform the songs… Last time we were on the coast together was for the filming of our music video for Going West at Granity.”
