Greetings everyone,

It is a beautiful morning down in Alexandra. The Autumn down here is just stunning with all the golden leaves on the trees.

We have now done 12 shows on the road for, "Swing Driven Thing," Arts on Tour New Zealand, and it has been an amazing time. So many full houses and lovely people in the audiences. It really has been a treat for all of us.

We have travelled from Christchurch to the wonderful Mussel Inn then all the way up to KeriKeri and Hokianga in Northland. We then travelled back down south for concerts on the lovely West Coast and now we have 6 shows in the lower and mid South Island before the tour is over. I know I will feel so sad after the last show....and maybe a little tired! Ha ha...

We have attached some photos to show how much fun has been had!

Fi xx

Went to your concert last night in the Earnscleugh hall…..was enthralled by the music, the passion and the vibrancy of your playing. Your violin just sang!!!! . A wonderful concert for us indeed and Petit Manouche…... will be watching for them.  Just loved the whole experience. Thank you for coming.

An electrifying energetic and edifying tour de force by really fantastic musicians right here in our special place of Central Otago. We were privileged to experience such a concert!!!!
