A New Zealand folk and blues music veteran, Chris Thompson is internationally recognised for his masterful guitar playing and original songs. He has released numerous albums, and toured with many singers and musicians including Julie Felix, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee, and John Hanlon. His songs have been covered by, among others, US psych-folk musicians Meg Baird and Robin Pecknold (Fleet Foxes). Join us for this free concert on the occasion of Chris’s latest release, the EP Woodsheddin’.

About Chris Thompson
Chris Thompson began performing as a teenager in Hamilton during the late 1960s, before finding success in the Auckland music scene. In 1970, already recognised as an accomplished fingerstyle guitarist, he moved to the UK to tour with Julie Felix, soon becoming part of the London and Dublin folk music scenes. His 1973 debut album on the Village Thing label, Chris Thompson, has since been acclaimed as a lost psychedelic folk classic and been reissued several times since 2001. Based back in New Zealand from the mid-1970s, Thompson has gone on to release over 20 albums, including as a duo with his former wife Lynne. His songs are notable contributions to the international folksong repertoire and capture a strong New Zealand perspective.

Poll: How prepared are you for a quake and tsunami?

About 1000 deaths, thousands of injuries and extensive destruction from Wellington up the east coast of the North Island - this will be the result of a tsunami triggered by an 8.9 earthquake in the Hikurangi subduction zone under a scenario presented by GNS Science.
The scenario, in a report prepared for the purpose of developing a response plan, is considered serious and credible, but comes with the obvious caveat that there is no way of telling what any earthquake or tsunami would look like. How prepared are you for a quake and tsunami?

Our country’s colonisation history, from 1840 to today
‘Undertow’, which premiered on Māori TV on 31 October, is all about ordinary people going to extraordinary measures in their search for a place to call home. It is political theatre wrapped up in Kaupapa Māori — the story of our country’s colonisation history, from 1840 to today.

As Jim Moriarty says, it’s a chance to ‘move forward into the 21st century, get over our historical amnesia and understand our collective history.’

Undertow website — Step through the proscenium arch and journey through time itself with UNDERTOW - Te Rākau’s electric Theatre Marae experience.

Te Rākau Trust
Te Rākau Trust, creators of 'Undertow', describe themselves as a Kaupapa Maori organisation, guided by Te Tiriti o Waitangi. Join Kaitohu / Performance Director — Jim Moriarty, Kaihautū / Producer — Aneta Pond and Kaituhi / Playwright — Helen Pearse-Otene in this lunchtime discussion about their journey to create a Theatre Marae experience.
