Blue Smoke welcomes you to ‘The Sunday Sit Down Get Down’ our very own folk club event. We present local luminaries and national touring artist of the finest calibre, this is a first rate opportunity to catch a matinee concert with family and friends.

it always starts at 4pm and the music is always infinitely admirable.

There is a suggested ‘Koha’ entry for this event, we encourage you to support the musicians and pay what you can afford. Pre-sale tickets are also available via eventfinda as space may be limited.

Hitting the highways once again this winter is award winning folk troubadour Graeme James.

2016 was an exciting year for the artist who released his debut original album News From Nowhere in September to great acclaim. The album was a finalist for the NZ Folk Album of The Year and the lead single ‘Alive’ gained second place in the Folk Category of the prestigious international Unsigned Only Songwriting Competition.

Evidence of his endless hard work and hours spent on the road, Graeme started his musical journey busking on the streets of Wellington and sleeping in his trusty ‘Hotel Corona’. These stories and experiences have shaped his captivating and unmissable live show featuring electric fiddle, guitar, bass, baritone ukulele, beat boxing, harmonica, mandolin and his velveteen vocals all with the help of a trusty loop pedal.

Graeme’s last tour almost sold out completely nationwide, so get in quick to hear the songs you love, and a couple of newbies.
