NZTrio – The Americas

A chance to experience top-notch classical musicianship, minus the formalities

NZTrio founding member Ashley Brown (cello) welcomes back Andrew Beer (violin) and Stephen De Pledge (piano) for a ripper of a programme with elements of New York nightlife, the wild west, jazzy blues, plus a liberal dose of spice from south o’ the border.

It’s classical music, but it’s wearing boots to the party so dress casual, bring a compadre, and enjoy the ride.

Music by Kenji Bunch, Paul Schoenfield, Gunther Schuller, Raimundo Penaforte, Astor Piazzolla and New Zealand’s own Claire Cowan and Jack Body.
Those of you who loved Exotica will not want to miss The Americas!

Nadia Reid at the Sawmill Cafe

Saturday 20 July | 9:30pm | $35*

NADIA REID & HER BAND

We are stoked to have Singer-songwriter and guitarist Nadia Reid back to the mill this July

Celebrated for her intimate musical soundscapes and unique voice, she has been described by The Guardian as “an understated, wise guide through uncertain territory”.
New Zealand-born, soon to be UK-based, Nadia Reid has attained global success off the back of her first two albums: Listen To Formation, Look For The Signs (2015) and Preservation (2017). Her prolific writing and touring have seen her present at some of the worlds most respected music platforms namely WOMAD (NZ), Green Man Festival (UK), End Of The Road Festival (UK) and a television appearance on BBC’s ‘Later…with Jools Holland’.

Nadia was awarded #2 in Mojo Magazine for Album of the Year (for Preservation) and in New Zealand, she was a finalist for both the APRA Silver Scroll Awards (2017) and the Taite Music Prize (2016 & 2018).
With sell-out shows in Auckland, London, Melbourne and her home town of Port Chalmers, Dunedin, and, record three under her belt, it is clear that Nadia Reid is a rising star not to be missed.

Nadia will be joined by Motte (Anita Clark) in Australia & New Zealand.
