AOTNZ Tours Grant Haua - Awa Blues -1-27 Nov

“A seasoned artist who touches all kinds of points in the blues and folk from Taj Mahal and JJ Cale to dialled down Stevie Ray and even an adventurous touch of acoustic James Blood Ulmer. Seems like this is Grant Haua's time” - Graham Reid (Elsewhere Magazine)

Grant Haua who was long time half of blues-roots stompers Swamp Thing (with drummer Michael Barker) will present in concert his deep timbre soul blues vocals/ acoustic guitars and foot percussion (Cajon/snare). This performance relates heavily to his Maori culture which is at the heart of these songs.

Grant wants the audiences to feel like they're guests in his home and like the songs, his home is pretty simple but it's warm and friendly. So welcome. This is his place. Awa Blues tour 2022. Kia ora koutou http://granthauamusic.com/
