"Something real,close to the heart and from the heart"
Brenda is well know in the folk and acoustic music scene in New Zealand. What's special and rare about this night is that she will be performing her own songs mostly on her own (though, of course, this is Rafters and a few friends might just turn up too).
Brenda has been writing songs since the 70's and more recently her songwriting has ranged from challenging to humorous, and covers stories from her own, and others' life experiences. Her most recent solo album, Box of Memories, was a finalist for the Best Folk Album Tui Award for 2013. NZM* describe her songs as "poignant, honest, brave and deeply personal" and "a pretty special listening experience". Mark this in your diary as 'not to be missed'.

The first half of our evening brings musicians old and new to warm us up before supper and our main guests. We welcome new performers. See Graham at the door if you want to perform, but you will need to be there before the 8pm start.
Photos and Videos
Photos and some videos of performances will be taken during the evening and displayed on our Facebook page. We also have a Rafters Music Club Youtube channel where we display some videos (type Rafters Music Club into Youtube search to find these videos). Please see Linda if you do not want your images publically available.
See you there
Graham, Jennifer, Linda and Alistair
