John Wright and the Sou'Westers

Sunday 9th April 2017

Renowned Kiwi sportsman John Wright shows us another side as he launches his album Red Skies right here in Motueka.

On the road as an international cricket coach you clock up hotel hours! John preferred to pick up his guitar and write songs rather than do crosswords. Finally those songs and stories have made their way onto an album recorded over two years with Sou’Westers Liam Ryan and Dean Hetherington.

John will perform with The Sou’Westers including third member Aly Cook who is enjoying a solo career with three Number 1 Country Radio hits in Australia in the last year.

Hear songs from Red Skies performed live for the first time in concert and see the premiere of John’s music video Drivin’ Into Mot featuring wonderful shots of Motueka Valley and township.

The pre-concert function will be at the Senior Citizens Hall from 6:30pm on. This includes Meet & Greet and album signing with John, refreshments and finger food, followed by the concert in Motueka Hall.
