Adam McGrath and the Roaring Days

Larger than life Adam McGrath has been a huge hit each time he’s toured with Arts On Tour, whether on his own or with iconic country band The Eastern.

A folk singer/songwriter ‘stationed wherever I land’, McGrath is at home with bluegrass, blues, country and rock’n’roll as much as folk and is known for the intensity, passion, love and humour of his performances.

This time he’s joined by a small but mighty rhythm section, The Roaring Days.

He’s been described by RNZ and the NZ Herald as a national treasure; Barry Saunders of the Warratahs sums him up simply as ‘the truth’.
