Long Ride Home

SUNDAY JUNE 9, 4:30PM

Two estranged siblings attempt to reconnect and quickly discover how annoying they still find one another. As they push their way through the extraneous nonsense of family drama, they find themselves falling into a divide stretched exponentially wider by their years apart. As they bike to a mutual friends party, the brother and sister question what it means to be part of a family and what they mean to each other. Is their relationship worth saving, or do they even have a choice?

Written and directed by award-winning playwright Jack Mcgee (2023 winner of Playmarket’s Playwrights b425) and starring two of aotearoa's finest emerging actors: Dylan Hutton & Anna Barker. After previous tours to Christchurch and Hawkes Bay, Squash Co Arts Collective are excited to bring their work to Palmerston North for the first time!

Jack McGee’s script is humorous, well-paced and dramatically satisfying in its story telling arc, as is his directing. Both actors get it absolutely right, and they achieve this while being in almost perpetual motion.’

Please Adjust Your G-String

SATURDAY JUNE 15, 7:00PM

“Please Adjust your G-string” is a hilarious romp through an OE with a difference. Margaret Austin left New Zealand in 1975 with no idea what lay ahead on the other side of the world. Blessed – or cursed – with a sense of adventure she turned up her nose at London, and went for Amsterdam, Athens and Paris, diving into experiences and situations not for the faint hearted. Some of them involved G strings, one or two were downright dangerous, and all of them added up to a life of unique discovery.

FRIDAY 5 JULY, 8PM

Kiwi folk sensation Graeme James is back with his first original body of work in two years, ‘Luminous Times’. After a mammoth year touring Europe, playing festivals in South Africa and the USA, Graeme is delighted to bring the collection of songs home to Aotearoa over the months of June and July.

Following a year of releasing adventurous covers of such diverse songs as ‘Harvest Moon’ by Neil Young and ‘You Only Live Once’ by The Strokes, James is excited to bring some fresh perspective and life to his own new and unheard material. ‘Luminous Times’ is an exploration of the stories we tell ourselves and the power they have to shape our experience for better or worse.

With a history of selling out concerts all around the world, and captivating audiences with tall tales and a dynamic performance, James layers electric violin, mandolin, banjo, guitar, bass, ukulele, percussion, synthesizer and soaring vocals to create his unique indie folk sound.
His tunes have been streamed over 50 million times on Spotify alone, have appeared on film and television and seen him featured in Rolling Stone.

Indie folk is having its renaissance once again and James is riding the wave, so be sure to check out his vibrant live show all around Aotearoa. In all main centres he is joined by compelling live drummer Ben Dixon, who will also open the evening with his own set of beautiful and haunting songs inspired by the likes of The National and Neil Young.

Indie Shuffle

"...one of the most interesting songwriters on the current scene..."
Il Fatto Quotidiano (Italy)

Daniel Champagne

SATURDAY JULY 20, 7:30PM

The young virtuoso recently described as “the finest guitar player of this generation” has fallen in love with New Zealand and after sellout tours through North America and Europe he will be back for an extensive national run of 35 shows!

Growing up in the Bega Valley on the Far South Coast of New South Wales, Australia the story goes that the young singer-songwriter and one of a kind guitar virtuoso first picked up his instrument of choice as a 5-year-old following in the footsteps of a musical father. He be-gan writing songs at 12, training classically throughout his teens and performing wherever he could, honing his craft and developing the dynamite live show that he is renowned for today. At 18 he finished school, turned professional and hit the road without looking back.

The following 15 years have seen him independently release 7 studio albums, tour relent-lessly around the globe, play some of the biggest festivals under the sun and share stages with the likes of Tommy Emmanuel, INXS, John Butler, Lucinda Williams, Ani DiFranco, Judy Collins and Rodrigo y Gabriela.

He has been described as “the finest guitar player of this generation”, “a leading light in acoustic music” and “a performer that must be seen to be believed” and in July and August he will bring his never ending world tour back to New Zealand!

WHAT THE PRESS SAY..
“The word Prodigy seems to entirely fall short of this soft-spoken young man’s skills, he co-axes sounds and melodies out of his instrument that literally drop jaws.” The Calgary Herald, CANADA

“Today I saw the future of Folk – Festival goers flocking in the thousands towards the main stage to witness a young musical phenomenon from Australia dish out an absolute show-stop-per.” The Firefly Column, USA

“Daniel Champagne is a crossroads. Fusing the strong traditions of Blues, Folk and other roots art with pop showmanship and admirable lyrical ability. I firmly believe that he will be-come an ambassador for roots music in a time where it desperately needs representation.” The Indie Blender, CANADA

“reinventing roots guitar” Rhythms Magazine, AUSTRALIA

“Watching Daniel Champagne perform is a once in a lifetime experience. He is a true prodigy that plays like no one else could possibly play unless they spent at least two lifetimes study-ing the art.” BW Review, NEW ZEALAND

“Daniel Champagne exudes a natural ease on stage, as he sings poignant lyrics and beauti-fully crafted melodies that invariably whisk the heart up with grand romanticism. Coupled with an exhilarating guitar talent that transcends mere acoustic playing to replicate a whole band, Champagne is just magical” Themusic.com.au, AUSTRALIA

"You feel as if he just invented the instrument yesterday and was discovering its possibilities afresh” Ted Gioia (American jazz critic and music historian)

TUESDAY JULY 23, 5:30PM

Accomplished Whanganui-based writer & artist, Fleur Wickes, is coming to Palmerston North to speak at our Women & Business event on Tuesday 23 July - and we're excited!!

After a very successful twenty-year career in photographic portraiture, and with published short stories and poetry under her belt, in 2008 Fleur began drawing the words she wrote: the shape of the drawn words acting as an emotional landscape, adding depth and meaning to the poetry. Since then, she’s made a career and a studio as an artist working in word and image, using photography, drawing and painting as her medium.


Fleur weaves together powerful, emotional words with her arresting – almost typographical – art style. For Fleur, art, emotion and balance are all interconnected, acting as both a release for her own feelings and as a way to connect with others around the world.
