Blind Tiger Touring is pleased to announce the return of Kitty Daisy & Lewis to New Zealand shores this summer.
The talented siblings, known for their authentic take on vintage country and first-generation rhythm and blues, will play at the Powerstation in Auckland in support of their new album, SUPERSCOPE.
“Kitty, Daisy and Lewis have turned out a vibrant, energy-filled fourth album showcasing their modern take on blues, rock ‘n’ roll and soul, an old-time sound from a millennial perspective”
- NZ Herald
“SUPERSCOPE is an addictive album, shooting clean and pure into your veins. Add this to your party mix and just try to keep your hips from shaking”
The trio will be joined on stage by their father Graeme Durham, new bassist Popcorn, and legendary trumpeter Eddie ‘Tan Tan’ Thornton.
No strangers to New Zealand, Kitty, Daisy & Lewis have built up a strong Kiwi fanbase over the last eight years, wowing audiences with their vibrant live performances and tight musicianship. Fans can expect to hear some of the band’s most popular tunes, such as ‘Going Up The Country’ and ‘Baby Bye Bye’ alongside new material from SUPERSCOPE.
Blind Boy Paxton is the living embodiment of the true blues in the 21st Century, but plays it all in the true songster tradition - ragtime, hokum, old time, French reels, Appalachian mountain music, blues and lots more.
The multi-instrumentalist has earned a reputation for transporting audiences back to the 1920s and making them wish they could stay. He sings and plays the banjo, guitar, piano, fiddle, harmonica, Cajun accordion, and the bones. He has the eerie ability to transform traditional jazz, blues, folk, and country into the here and now, and make it real.
It makes for the perfect accompaniment to Kitty Daisy & Lewis who are known for their authentic take on vintage country and first-generation rhythm and blues. Not to mention their energetic live performances and tight musicianship.
