The 3rd installment of The Small Hall Sessions

If you attended any of the Delaney Davidson & Barry Saunders shows in May or the Reb Fountain & Dave Khan gigs in June, you’ve probably already booked your choice of the small halls which make up the Darren Watson tour. Blues maestro Darren plays Tikokino, Sherenden, Otane, Waimarama and Te Awanga across Wednesday, July 7th to Sunday, July 11th.  If you haven’t got tickets yet, move quickly!

How amazingly warm and special have these shows been so far?! Brought to the region by Jamie Macphail, they’re a total winter highlight. You’ll find all the details here.
