Rosie and Richie  Thursday, 30th January, 2020.
Richie Stearns (the Horse Flies) and Rosie Newton (the Duhks) are a dynamic duo performing music rooted in the Americana tradition. With their memorable original songs and entrancing, nostalgic harmonies, Richie and Rosie take the fiddle/banjo combination to new levels as they continue to expand the boundaries of tradition. 
Before joining forces, Richie earned himself a name with genre-bending band the Horse Flies and collaborations with Natalie Merchant and Donna the Buffalo. Having performed internationally with legends like Bela Fleck, Pete Seeger, David Byrne, Billy Bragg & Wilco, and Joan Baez, his career spans decades. When their paths crossed in the Ithaca old-time scene during Rosie’s freshman year, Richie & Rosie began touring together as members of the Evil City String Band, and were eventually drawn to pursue this more intimate duo project. Richie and Rosie blend traditional and contemporary sounds, outrageous punk banjo, powerful evocative fiddle with beautiful vocal harmonies. Richie, is an innovator of 5-string banjo much loved for his “mantra-groove spooky-banjo style” Rosie is a ferocious fiddler who’s work spans many musical styles.

We’re pleased to offer our home to present live music in Te Pahu.  As well as concerts we’ve also enjoyed theatre performances and art exhibitions.

We’ve been entertained by a wide range of musical styles – and been wowed by the amazing skills and musicality of the travelling minstrals.

It’s the home of Sylvia’s Toaster ukulele band, and practices are held here most Wednesdays.

When not in use for performances the room is our lounge – however it was built for use as a small theatre, music room and library. There are good acoustics by way of its shape and use of irregular sized timber, and shelves of books. There’s a projector and stage lights.  Seating is casual – lounge suites, chairs, some old theatre seats, beanbags and carpets.

Audience size has ranged from about 15 to over 80.  Entrance is by donation – all proceeds go to the performers.

There is a housetruck, small caravan and room available for accomodation.
