Jasper Hawkins Band with La Vida String Quartet
Singer-songwriter Jasper Hawkins is set to return to his home town with a five-piece band and his sister Jane on vocals.
He last played in Nelson in 2016 to a sold out audience at The Boathouse. Hawkins is beginning to gain traction in the musical world with his classic sound reminiscent of Fleetwood Mac and Simon & Garfunkel.
He is now based in Auckland and returns for the launch of his debut album recorded at Neil Finn’s Roundhead Studio. La Vida String Quartet will join him and the band, playing his original compositions and a number of covers.
In August this year Hawkins’ hauntingly beautiful song Letter to my Mother, was featured on Jesse Mulligan’s show on Radio NZ. He will be performing this live at his concert and copies of his new album will be for sale on the night.
Jasper encourages you to “Come along and be inspired by beautiful instrumentation and soaring harmonies”.
