Featured Interview: Jan Preston - Boogie Woman at The Globe( 0:13:43)       
Episode Information
JAN PRESTON was always drawn to the Boogie Woogie style of piano playing, made popular by Black American’s in the 1930’s.So it’s no surprise that her latest CD is called PIANO BOOGIE WOMAN, Jan singing and playing with energy and passion in the characteristic 8-to-the-bar boogie rhythm. This is a landmark CD for Jan being her 12th solo album, recorded entirely on her own grand piano, with a protracted song writing period due to the COVID lockdown. “I had much more listening and thinking time on this CD than any prior, and I’m very excited by the results.” says Jan. “I’m also delighted to be able to come from Sydney (via hotel isolation) to play an extensive tour of the North Island with my trio. We’ll be performing my new material as well as some music that’s been in our set for a while but not recorded until now” - Join her at The Globe Theatre, Main St., PN on October 22nd.

Featured Interview: Darren Watson (Gig at the Globe 02-10-20)( 0:18:14)       
Episode Information
Beloved Aotearoa folk-blues musician Darren Watson is releasing his new album Getting Sober For The End Of The World on October 1. And he's hitting the road to bring it to you across the country all October-long! The album tells a diverse range of stories in song - from the upbeat title track about giving up the party life just as Earth seems about to end, to the poignant ballad of 'Ernie Abbott'. In 1984 Abbott, Wellington Trades’ Hall caretaker, was murdered in one of New Zealand’s most infamous acts of domestic terrorism. The case is still unsolved and Watson exquisitely asks “…who put Ernie Abbot’s soul in God’s hands?” Hugh chats to Darren about his gig at the Globe Theatre on the 2nd of October, and about the album.
