Fly My Pretties Homeland Tour
September 2013 will see Fly My Pretties return to their roots, as they embark on 20 intimate shows across New Zealand on
the Homeland Tour.
With the musical journey beginning at Aotearoa’s tip in Kaitaia and ending in the Southern-most city of Invercargill,
the regional tour will see the collective chart a route rarely explored by top live acts.
Fly My Pretties has proudly introduced many breakthrough musicians over the past decade and once again bring together an
exciting mix of undiscovered & established talent to join founder, Barnaby Weir.
With a cast that reflects a diverse mix of New Zealand’s musical landscape, the Homeland Tour welcomes the following
musicians: Anika Moa, Mel Parsons, Ria Hall, Barnaby Weir, Jarney Murphy, Kara Gordon, Louis McDonald, Mark Vanilau, Mike Fabulous,
Nigel Patterson, Ryan Prebble & Shaun Blackwell.
New cast members include: Two time Tui-nominated folk musician, Mel Parsons; singer, Maori TV presenter & Reggae All Star member Ria Hall who despite joining FMP for one-off shows has never recorded with the cast; Kara Gordon – an amazing undiscovered talent who is in Europe working with Finlay Quaye and the Alabama 3; Louis McDonald singer & guitarist of rising stars, Five Mile Town who just won the 2013 International Song-writing Competition; Mark Vanilau who is known for performing alongside the country’s great names including Dave Dobbyn and is one third of ‘Vanilau,
Maxwell, Baker’ (alongside Warren Maxwell & Louis Baker); Shaun Blackwell an up and coming singer-guitarist in the capital’s folk/country outfit, John The Baptist; and finally a member who
needs little introduction, Anika Moa who is currently writing her new album before heading off on the road with FMP – hopefully to road test a song or two!
The tour will see Fly My Pretties hark back to their musical roots with a sound reminiscent of their first 2 live albums
- Live at Bats & The Return Of – an unashamedly kiwi sound stepped in folk, roots, soul & rock.
