Adam McGrath is really doing his bit for New Zealand Music Month at our libraries. He’s appearing at Aranui Library tomorrow (Friday 2pm) and last night The Eastern opened Music Month at Central Library Tuam.
They were supported by two young singer-songwriters, Katie Thompson and Ivy Rossiter aka Luckless, both with strong and unique voices.
The Eastern has just returned from a tour of Australia – the last leg of 13 months of touring – and Adam’s voice was starting to show the strain. Not that it mattered in the least. Their high energy, foot tapping, let’s-get-up-and-dance music, combined with McGrath’s innate talent for engaging an audience, completely negated any vocal shortcomings.
None of this group stays still for more than about a second. As a result my photos were all either blurry or very blurry. The crowd of around 150 was equally energised and we all had a great night.
