Wellington Folk Festival: special Spooky guest announcement………………………..
We are delighted to announce a late addition to the festival programme. The fabulous, funny, seriously talented Spooky Men’s Chorale have been able to include a one off concert at the Wellington Folk Festival. Several of us have seen these loons on stages in Australia – and we couldn’t miss including them in the festival.
Armed with no more than their voices, and the ongoing search for the perfect boofchord, the Spooky Men’s Chorale asks the time honoured question: does size matter? They should know if anyone does, because they have been exploring the dimensions of their own voices, and the enormous spaces that they sing in, for the last 11 years. They are passing through Wellington and couldn’t resist the lure of the Wellington Folk Festival (our region’s greatest gathering of fun seeking musical appreciators) to offer their latest morsel to an unsuspecting public. “BIG” is their latest EP, and ample evidence that both immaculate musicalia and sly commentary on the man-condition are in ever new territory.
