Inspired by the unvarnished music of early folk and blues heroes such as Dock Boggs, Roscoe Holcomb and Leadbelly, Shindig present stonking new takes on old-time folk, blues and country tunes from the American pantheon. The trio consists of the driving clawhammer banjo and vocals of DAVID WARD, the vital fiddle of DAVE KHAN (Marlon Williams, Reb Fountain) and the solid foundation of EAMON EDMUNDSON-WELLS on Double Bass.
Shindig perform regularly around Auckland, and were a headline act at KIWIGRASS : NZ's Bluegrass Festival in 2021.
In 2021 David was banjo tutor/advisor, arranger/composer and banjoist for
JANE CAMPION'S Golden Globe
and Oscar-Winning film
THE POWER OF THE DOG:
"The most menacing five-string banjo picking since Deliverance."
