Two renowned singer-songwriters will be joining forces for a special headline show in Oamaru next month.

The “Songbook and Six String” tour will feature Paul Ubana Jones and Bryce Wastney collaborating on each other’s songs and sharing tales from their combined 50 years as professional musicians.

Together they recorded a special concert in Nelson last year that featured guests from the Waimea College Choir which has been captured on film.

The DVD includes an insightful NZ tour documentary plus a live CD and will be for sale at the show.

Ubana Jones said they were looking forward to travelling to perform for audiences with the DVD.

“People often ask me about the stories behind the songs and enjoy tales from the road.

“Sometimes when it’s your own journey you forget how unusual the life of a touring musician is for most people.”

Ubana Jones has toured with Taj Mahal, Keb Mo’, Crowded House and Norah Jones and opening for Bob Dylan and Patti Smith.

Wastney returned to New Zealand last year after establishing his reputation on the indie music scene in Melbourne, Australia.

He recently signed with major US label Musik and Film and his first single with the label, “Dead Man Walking” reached number 2 on New Zealand’s country music chart on iTunes.

The performance will be held at the Oamaru Opera House on Saturday, December 13 at 8pm.
