Andrew Armitage speaks with Miles Calder on Paekākāriki 88.2FM ahead of his gig on Saturday June 4 at St Peter’s Hall. As part of a national tour, Calder goes on to play at San Fran in Wellington on Saturday 11th June and The Wine Cellar in Auckland on Saturday 2nd July.
Calder is a 2022 Tui Award finalist for Te Kaipuoro Taketake Toa / Best Folk Artist. His new single – see an acoustic live video version below – is ‘Pushing and Pulling’. Producer is Samuel Flynn Scott (The Phoenix Foundation) with backing and synths, and further electrified, by Chris Armour’s guitar (who joins him on tour).
