Blues with Neil Billington and Mike Garner
Saturday, August 22, 2015 - 8:00pm

Direct from their second Japanese tour, harmonica virtuoso Neil Billington and veteran bluesman Mike Garner are coming to the Tauranga Art Gallery. Get ready for a night of authentic blues with harmonica like you've never heard it before!

Neil Billington is one of the leading exponents of the harmonica to come from New Zealand, a rare player who is equally at home playing in the 'Chicago-style' of Little Walter as he is exploring sophisticated jazz.

Mike Garner is one of NZ's most experienced blues performers, a singer, songwriter and guitarist. He has performed in the UK, Italy, Germany, Australia, New Caledonia, Japan, Kathmandu and the Cook Islands. In 2014, the duo played in Tokyo and in June 2015 were invited back to Japan for a more extensive tour including Tokyo, Osaka, Kyoto and Nagoya.
