Graeme James [Tauranga] The Long Way Home Tour - 11 May 2019

When: Saturday, 11 May 2019 from 19:30-22:00

Where: Folk Cafe - 148 Durham St, Tauranga

After a breakthrough year of international shows, one of New Zealand’s most streamed indie artists Graeme James returns to NZ to tour his Nettwerk label debut album The Long Way Home.

The Long Way Home is an album that explores time and space through the motif of the journey. In keeping with the album title 2018 was a year of intense international travel for Graeme, relocating to Europe and racking up over 25,000kms on a highly successful 3 month North American tour. With over 20 million total streams on Spotify, his songs have travelled around the world before him helping sell out concerts around the globe.

His captivating live show features Graeme playing electric violin, guitar, bass, baritone ukulele, mandolin, harmonica and percussion as he recreates his foot stomping tunes in real time with his famous loop pedal.

He’s finally home- but not for long! With his last NZ tour completely selling out you won’t want to miss the chance to see this award-winning artist live in Aotearoa.
