Darren Watson | One Voice, One Guitar, One Night

Darren Watson | One Voice, One Guitar, One Night

Legendary blues musician Darren Watson (Chicago Smoke Shop, Midge Marsden Band, Planet Key) is bringing his vintage Gibson acoustic for an intimate one man show at Napier's Paisley Stage.

Don't miss your opportunity to see one of Australasia's most original and exciting musicians up close and personal just a few months before his stunning new album Getting Sober For The End Of The World hits the streets!

Tickets $25 plus fees. Door sales on the night if available $35. So book early folks!


“If Ry Cooder had a long-lost New Zealand cousin, it would be Darren Watson. In “Getting Sober For the End of the World”, you can smell the crawfish étouffée bubbling on the stove while a New Orleans first line shuffles and slinks past the window, the lyrics carrying you along with the unifying connection of music and humanity.”
Tami Neilson

“I’m digging Darren Watson’s new song Getting Sober For The End Of The World. It’s not easy writing catchy tunes that carry a message, but Darren pulls it off easily, singing in his big, soulful voice: ‘ can hold folks up, you can knock folks down, it matters what we do and what we say.’ Right on!”
Rick Holmstrom (Mavis Staples Band)

"Anyone who thinks only Americans can authentically sing the blues should listen to this album by the New Zealander Darren Watson. It’s outstanding from beginning to end – the finest acoustic blues CD this reviewer has heard in quite some time."
Blues Matters Magazine (UK)
