Bluesfest Touring announces two separate Bluesfest Australia 30th Anniversary sideshows for New Zealand.

Shakey Graves a.k.a Alejandro Rose-Garcia was born in Austin Texas to a musical family and is best-known for playing a smoky, spectral fusion of blues, folk and rock in a stripped down one-man-band style. Shakey Graves live performances can be deceiving. Up to now, he’s been categorized as an Americana singer-songwriter, thanks to his traditionally rooted songs, fluent acoustic-guitar picking, Texas roots and cowboy hat, looking like a one-man country band. But the tag will undoubtedly be dismissed as restrictive and irrelevant once discerning listeners hear his radical new album performed live in Auckland next April.

THE POWERSTATION - 24 APRIL 2019 Tickets on sale 10am Friday 16 November from AAA Ticketing.

Quintessential Irish-American Celtic folk/punk band Flogging Molly is leaving California this April to come and dazzle New Zealand with their wild live performance tactics. Known for their distinctive fusion of traditional Irish music and often abrasive hard-hitting punk rock, their impassioned live show has won the hearts of many Punk – Rock – Folk fans over the past two decades. Undoubtedly they will continue in that vein, playing their first ever Auckland show in 2019.
