Charlotte Yates & Show Pony: A Beautiful Evening of Literate Lyrics, 18 November 2018


Top singer-songwriter and recording artist Charlotte Yates teams up with dynamite multi-instrumentalist Show Pony (trumpet/violin/vocals) to showcase songs hot off the press from Charlotte’s latest album release, Then The Stars Start Singing, alongside a strong selection from her extensive back catalogue in a sizzling two-set show.

A beautiful evening of literate lyrics, luscious harmonies and skilled settings adding extra colour and texture to the confident unguarded emotion that is the hallmark of Yates’ work.

In addition to releasing some fine solo albums and being a member of the wickedly witty When the Cat’s Been Spayed, Charlotte Yates has co-ordinated all-star musical tributes to James K Baxter, Hone Tuwhare and Witi Ihimaera. Then the Stars Start Singing is Charlotte’s seventh studio album and will be available for sale at the concert.

Previously an Artist in residence at the Christchurch Arts Centre, Charlotte is known to Christchurch and South Island audiences or songwriters as the ‘Songdoctor’ for developing writers with the Freakin’ Awesome Songwriting Clinics and Retreats.

Lisa Tui and Matt Davis will be starting the evening @ 7.30 then Wellington based Charlotte and Show Pony will take up the reins!

These nights at the Folk Club are fabulous for really getting to listen in and enjoy great music and the artists.

“Charlotte brings a wealth of craft and skill to her music – inspiring, engaging, relevant and enjoyable” – Lisa Tui
