AFTERNOON GIG: SUNDAY 25 JULY @ 2:30pm
PASSIONATE ACOUSTIC MUSIC
MARK LAURENT & BRENDA LIDDIARD
_______________________________________________________________
Blues, folk, and acoustic rock will light up Kauaeranga Hall on Sunday afternoon 25 July.
For three decades Mark Laurent and Brenda Liddiard have been playing music together, part of that secret army of ‘indie’ musicians who fly just below the commercial radar, playing grass-roots, mostly un-plugged music throughout New Zealand, Australia and the UK.
Mark Laurent plays the blues like his life depends on it! His guitar is just about as expressive as his vocals and confirms the guitar hero status that he earned several decades ago when his professional music career kicked off in the 1970’s.
His wife, and performance partner Brenda Liddiard, has a voice born of true folk, protest and alt country sentiments. Brenda has been greatly influenced by English and American acoustic music and found her niche as a songwriter during her passionate involvement with environmental and anti-nuclear issues dating from the 70’s and 80’s. Her album, Box of Memories, was a finalist in the 2013 Tui Awards for Best Folk Album.
Laurent and Liddiard together present an eclectic mix of material that can be ‘pin drop’ delicate, or sound like a full band! Their concert reviews are mind-blowing. Here's what one Australian reviewer said:
“The highlight of the entire evening took place when Mark launched into some blues during which he played blistering, brilliant acoustic guitar licks, while voice-mimicking lead guitar sounds note for note, nuance for nuance in a masterful display of technique and taste that stands as one of our clubs most memorable performances to this day. He almost brought the house down.” Brendan Hanley, Byron Vista Social Club, Byron Bay, NSW
