Photo: SUPPLIED With a couple of band members in Darky Roots originally from Feild- ing and Palmerston North, there is a strong connection to the town and the band is looking forward to showcasing their current sounds to family, friends and the general public. Darky Roots are based in Brisbane and are returning to New Zealand to launch their new release Night time which has already received wide-spread airplay. This is Darky Roots sec- ond tour of New Zealand since their inception. This is the only Manawatu show due to tight scheduling. Darky Roots then head off to Auckland to share the stage with House of Shem, 1814, and Corner- stone Roots, to name a few, before playing further shows in Whangarei, Tauranga, Hamilton and Auckland. Darky Roots sound is rich in vintage vocal harmony, strong bass-driven rhythms and conscious lyrical content. Darky Roots will be playing at the Royal Hotel, Rangitikei St, Palmerston North on December 2 at 7.30pm. Tickets available from the Royal or online from event finder.co.nz Free concert at Hunterville All sorts: Talented musicians gig together under the name of Sven Olsen's Brutal Canadian Love Saga. Eleven of them are coming to play a free show at the Station Hotel in Hunterville this Sunday, including a string quartet. Photo: NIGEL BECKFORD By TERRY KARATAU Rock musician Nigel Beckford writes rock songs which are scored for string quartets by top guitarist Clive Clemett. The results may seem an unlikely marriage of musical genres but having just listened to one of their recordings Minefield from their CD, From the bottom of the Hill Top -- I can t wait to hear more. Seven or eight people make up the core of the band. They are joined by musicians of all ages who take time out from their bands, the symphony orchestra, teaching music at schools and other professional musical pursuits, when they can, and turn up to Sunday rehearsals, when they want. They polish a few tunes and then go gigging -- that s Sven Olsen s Brutal Canadian Love Saga. And that s what they are doing this weekend. Saturday at Paekakariki, Sunday at Hunterville, a free con- cert at the Station Hotel at 1pm, out on the lawn weather permit- ting or inside the hotel. We are looking forward to catching up with the locals after the gig. Could be a barbecue -- its going, so let s have some fun, Beckford said. Why Hunterville? Well, Beckford said, every time we pass through Hunterville we stop off for a real fruit icecream. One day I ventured into this next door shop called Lucky -- it s fantastic, it s a music shop, it s Georgie s place and she sells New Zealand music, including our CD. My wife had to drag me out of the shop! So this is how we want to repay Georgie by doing a free gig; why not? Incidentally, Beckford wrote Chairman of the Wool Board's Daughter, a saga that runs for a good 10 minutes. He was surprised to find royalties arriving in his bank account, from NZ On Air and other radio stations. They must be playing it while they take time out for coffee, he says.
