Greg Fleming live at the library


Greg Fleming. New Zealand Music Month 2010 is all about looking back and looking forward. It’s the 10th Birthday! Ten years of spreading the word on our vast musical talent to all corners of the country. And what better way to kick it off at Auckland Central Library than with Greg Fleming, a figurehead of local songwriting for the last 20 years and pioneer of NZ alternative country.

Fleming, with his band The Trains (including members of Straitjacket Fits, Don McGlashan & The Seven Sisters) supported many international artists in the ‘90s, such as Townes Van Zandt, Paul Kelly, Bryan Adams and Heather Nova. And this Saturday 1 May, at 12pm in Auckland Central Library, they will be performing new material from Fleming’s much-anticipated new album. It is going to be a special event for sure.

Check out Greg's MySpace page for more info.

This is the first of many performances held throughout Auckland City Libraries during May. As the month rolls on, we’ll update you with the latest and greatest of happenings around the city. Every Friday (4pm) and Saturday (12pm) at Central Library, there will be FREE! live performances by prominent local musicians, including Artisan Guns, Lisa Crawley, Tono and more. Check out the full events listing  for events at all the Auckland City Libraries, and stay listening!
