Your guide to events in Nelson, New Zealand


Friday 2nd November 2018

Come on a rollercoaster ride of original music with MilkThistle playing their unique style of ‘cello based indie-folk-rock.

Over the years, the band spiralled through many Wellington music scene regulars, with the current line-up drawn from The Shot Band, Hobnail Boots, NZSO, Aroha String Quartet, Tofos Greek band, the Darren Watson Band and more.

Shockingly in all their many years and guises MilkThistle has never played the South Island – be there to witness their first ‘overseas’ tour!

Singer-songwriter Hamish Graham looks forward to airing their sounds in this characterful homely venue. “We don’t perform very often,” says Hamish, “and rather than a traditional bar
gig, we wanted this to have more of a house concert feel – like someone’s large lounge. Fairfield House has that perfect cosy vibe.”
