About the event

Celtic Music from NZ’s finest. Live in Murchison

Driving, hypnotic Celtic music from two of NZs top players.

Prepare for an exhilarating musical journey with Half Light, featuring Rennie Pearson and Bob McNeill, as they embark on a South Island tour of New Zealand from December 27th to January 11th. Known for their spellbinding Celtic music, this duo combines traditional folk tunes and original compositions, delivering captivating foot-tapping rhythms and soaring melodies that wow audiences.

Their performances are a vibrant mix of old and new melodies, offering a diverse range of musical styles. With wooden flute, whistles, guitars, voices and infectious rhythms, Half Light crafts a magnetic musical experience that is both uplifting and mesmerizing.

Both Rennie and Bob are luminaries in the folk music scene of New Zealand and Australia, boasting extensive touring experience as solo artists and group members. They are experts in their craft, having shared their knowledge and talents at numerous festivals and workshops including NZ's leading Irish music school 'Ceol Aneas'. Rennie's mastery of wooden flutes, Irish tin whistles, and other instruments combined with Bob's multi award winning songwriting and exquisite guitar playing promises an evening of intricately crafted and diverse folk music that will resonate with audiences of all ages.

Fresh from their tour in Australia where they impressed audiences across Victoria, New South Wales, Canberra and Tasmania, these virtuoso musicians are set to play just a short stint of shows here in the South Island. Don't miss Half Light's magnetic blend of foot-tapping rhythms and soaring melodies. For tickets and further details, visit renniepearsonmusic.com.
