Indigo FM Presents is excited to announce two fabulous back to back shows on the weekend of 4 and 5 February featuring the exceptional storytelling and songs of Joel Havea.
The first show is at Kergunyah Memorial Hall on Saturday evening 4 February (6pm start); the second is at Rutherglen Convent on Sunday afternoon 5 February (3:15pm start) and is co-presented with Arts Rutherglen and Destination Rutherglen.
Tickets are on sale now and are strictly limited. You can click the links above to head to the ticketing site for each show.
These shows are a must-see with Havea featuring songs from his 2020 album Ki ‘a Lavaka which explored his Tongan heritage as well as songs from across his career including recent single Feels Like July.
Havea has spent the past 12 years based in Hamburg, Germany with occasional return visits to Australia and his family home in North-East Victoria.
Indigo FM President Scott Landells said that the volunteer-run radio station is excited to have the opportunity to host these shows. “At Indigo FM we have always valued highly original storytelling and songwriting, and Joel is a great exponent of the genre. He is a warm, charismatic performer with an impressive repertoire of songs across several albums as a solo artist and also with his German based band. Joel also has strong ties to north-east Victoria having grown up in Yackandandah, so it’s a great honour to be able to present these shows”, Landells said.
“Supporting Joel is 12yo Staghorn Flat country music sensation Jack Gregory, a very young singer-songwriter and performer who is just beginning what is sure to be a fascinating career.”
“We also love the concept of getting music into funky spaces and venues like Kergunyah Hall and Rutherglen Convent are spaces we just love. There’s so much character and stories these buildings hold and we’re looking forward to adding to that history on 4 & 5 February.”
