Springtime in New Zealand – and I’m on my way

Tuner? Check. Spare strings? Check. Knockout pill for the flight? Check.

It’s the final countdown before my first tour of New Zealand. I’ll be playing, and doing workshops, at the Wellington Folk Festival, and then travelling the North Island (with one day on the South Island) to play theatres, folk clubs and house concerts from Napier down to Dunedin.

It’s spring in New Zealand and I’m refusing to listen to those who warn me that the Wellyfest is named not after the town where  it takes place but what we’ll have to wear on our feet. There will be sun, flowers, albatrosses  soaring happily over our heads –  and lots of music.

It’s going to be fun.
