We are kicking off the 2022 Hawke's Bay Arts Festival with some Festival taster sessions in July and August, of which this show is one.
Reb Fountain returns to the Festival, with her all-star band including Dave Khan, Earl Robertson and Karin Canzek, premiering her highly anticipated new album IRIS, along with other favourite material from her Taite Prize winning self-titled album.
IRIS elevates Reb Fountain’s music to new heights. She effortlessly combines pop elements with her trademark noir folk-punk sound, weaving authentic and anthemic tunes that create an instant and indelible impression.
Written during lockdown Reb has said on the album “IRIS provided me an opportunity to speak my unspoken, to reflect what I have seen and experienced from within and to bear witness. I wanted and needed to give voice to this essential human spirit; to conjure and hold and commune with the very real, valid and invaluable voices within and around me.”
Arahi – Hawke’s Bay's finest up-and-coming artist will open the show with his eclectic and original songs.
This show runs for 120 minutes, including intervals, and is suitable for all ages.
