Armed with what may well be the strongest musical work ethic in all of Aotearoa and a lifetime’s worth of tunes, Delaney Davidson is returning to local stages this summer for an extensive and varied run of events – including a Napier support slot for none other than Elton John and multimedia Ship Of Dreams performances in Palmerston North and Hamilton. Amongst other achievements in 2019, the Lyttelton songwriting maverick released excellent collaborative records with both Barry Saunders of The Warratahs and Bruce Russell of The Dead C, spearheaded a ten track collection celebrating the work of Christchurch figurehead Al Park, contributed to Stink Magnetic‘s Twelve & A Half Country Greats compilation, and toured extensively in Europe, the UK and his homeland. Be sure to snap up your tickets to catch the famously enigmatic songsmith in your area while you can.
Part man part wheel, Delaney Davidson is part wandering minstrel, part travelling salesman. One hand holds a small brown suitcase; his trade, his ghost orchestra, the other holds his guitar. One foot firmly in the Blues Trash corner of the ring, the other on the road, you could say Delaney sees music as he sees geography, and that although he has certain preferences, in fact all territories are up for grabs.
