    Event description

    “Soaring melodies that wow audiences...
    exquisite guitar playing...
    a magnetic musical experience."-- AKAROA MAIL

    Half Light are a duo from Wellington, New Zealand who play driving, original Celtic music. Half Light arrange the music in new and exciting ways, drawing inspiration from both old and modern musical styles to weave a tapestry of rhythms, melodies and songs that will transport the listener to faraway lands at one moment and have their toes tapping and hands clapping at another.

    Soaring flute and whistles, sonorous guitars, great songs and thumping rhythms take the music to unusual places. Two virtuoso players with a new slant on live folk music, full of dark energy; Celtic music at full tilt. These two are among the best there are and they create an intricately crafted and varied evening of music that is sure to bring the celtic blood deep within your veins to the boil.

    Both Rennie and Bob are heavily involved in the folk music scene in New Zealand and Australia, both having extensive experience touring as solo acts and as part of various groups. They are both leading experts on their respective instruments and have taught and performed together various times at NZ’s Irish music school ‘Ceol Aneas’ as well as other festivals and workshops. The music they play delves deep into their musical creativity, with Bob’s intricate and evocative song writing and Rennie’s wide array of sounds and styles on the wooden flute and other instruments. Their show features wooden flute, Irish tin whistles, various guitars and some unfamiliar sounds for a Celtic act. Theirs is a fascinating and fresh approach to traditional folk music that is sure to delight the ears of listeners of all ages
