Ishtopia

Ish balcony colour Large

Hawke's Bay Group, Ish, plays traditional acoustic music from the other side of the world, and new tunes inspired by it. Take some stunning music from Bulgaria, Sweden, Moldova, Ireland, Brittany and Egypt, mix it up with exuberant Klezmer, a sprinkle of cool Latin Cumbia and some stomping original tunes for good measure - that's the Ish experience.

Conceived by Dana Parkhill during the creative anomaly that was lockdown, Ish debuted last year at Fringe in the 'Stings to a sild and whooping sell-out crowd. The Ish whānau pools its talent from various musical paths and includes Dana, Louise Ward, Phill Jones, Johnny Goodhind, Joe Dobson and Chris Beernink.

For the Festival, this vibrant group has created a show to transport you from daily life to fire-lit camps, crowded taverns and fiesta dance floors. Fiddle, flute, bouzouki, banjo, bass, cajon and kit... it's World-ish Folk, folks!

This show runs for 90 minutes, including interval, and is suitable for all ages.
