Guest Poets: Peter Larsen
Peter Larsen is a poet, playwright and raconteur who has performed his work around the country for the last 25 years. Profound and entertaining, his retrospective show samples the last fifteen years of his repertoire.
Guest Musician: Steven Hood
Lauded by the media as “One of the brightest new things on the New Zealand music scene” (New Zealand Herald) New Zealand singer songwriter Stevie Starr’s (now performing as Steven Hood) debut album “We Hope In All Things New” continues to received acclaim by critics and audiences alike. Press described the album as “Like Sigur Rós if they hung out with Radiohead in a Horowhenua forest.” (TheSunday Star Times) and Rip It Up noted Starr as an “Act to Look Out For”. Steven takes inspiration from his expeditions, hitch-hiking around NZ and Europe, playing gigs at the Starclub in Hamburg, meeting Maori tribal elders at Waitangi, dossing with crab farmers, and drinking with locals on the road, hoping one might offer him a refreshing beverage in exchange for a tale. Currently Steven has been working on his follow-up LP, due for release next year. “We Hope In All Things New” is distributed by Border Music and DRM.
