About the event

Hill-start Union

Hill-start Union is the musical  collaboration of Porirua couple Jo Moir (Hobnail) and Simon Harding  (Obediah). Simon (vocals, guitar & mandola)  and Jo (vocals &  fiddle) have been singing together since they fatefully met at the  Plimmerton Open Mic six years ago.

The Hillstart Union sound features Simon's authentic Americana tinged vocals, and Jo's weaving fiddle lines and harmonies.  They  play simple songs that pack a punch, following the old maxim of "three  chords and the truth". Simon & Jo craft their own versions of songs  from favourite artists including Jason Isbell, Shane Nicholson and Gram  Parsons, with the odd original song sneaking its way into the set.

Gram Antler

Gram  Antler has toured extensively around the country with Eb and Sparrow  and more recently as the accompanist of Ebony Lamb in her solo  endeavours. Gram is well known for his mesmerising atmospheric guitar  sounds  and captivating voice.

Gram is a  talented songwriter in his own right, with beautiful melodic tunes and  lyrics that go straight to the heart. He will be playing songs from his  upcoming solo album.
