Wednesday 23rd October 2019

Greg Copeland is coming back to New Zealand!

He's is taking it to the roots with an up close and personal acoustic journey.

Greg pays his dues to the originals and forefathers of the Blues from deep down South, channeling the spirit into his own material and style.

„When I sing I want you to feel my hurt, my pain, my happiness and my sadness. I want to ask for forgiveness if I did something wrong and forgive people if they have done me wrong. All these things I try to do with my music.“
