Rennie Pearson: Traditional Celtic Music

Sunday 13th February 2022

Grounded in the Celtic musical traditions, Rennie Pearson takes the listener on a journey through history, weaving together tunes and songs and the tales that accompany them to create an intricate and varied show. His engaging stage presence and storytelling opens the door for audiences to connect with the music, which he plays on the wooden flute, Irish tin whistles, guitar, bodhran and voice.

Rennie has made a name for himself in the Irish music scene of New Zealand and Australia. He has performed with great traditional musicians such as John Carty, Catherine MacEvoy, James Kelly and more. He has taught throughout New Zealand and internationally, both solo and with a range of other musicians such as Rob Zielinski, Oscar West and Gillian Boucher. Most recently he taught wooden flute at Ceol Aneas (New Zealand’s Irish Music School), accompaniment at ScotStrings Camp (New Zealand Scottish Music School) and traditional music workshops at Auckland and Whare Flat Folk Festivals. In 2021 he toured with Irish dance sensation, Celitica, as their flute and bodhran player. He also released an album with fiddler and small-piper, Oscar West as the kiwi folk duo, ‘Polytropos’, in 2020..
