Saints back to thrill fans
Touring: Tattletale Saints.
Just returned from Nashville
Tennessee where they recorded
their debut album How Red is
the Blood, Tattletale Saints are
playing at The Cabana next
week. Now based in New Zea-
land, Cy Winstanley and Van-
essa McGowan were formerly
part of acclaimed London-based
group Her Make-Believe Band.
The duo play Winstanley's
songs in their rawest form, with
just acoustic guitar, double bass
and voices, in what they
describe as love letters between
Amy Mann and a slip-slidin'
Tattletale Saints recorded at
Butcher Shoppe Studios, the
birthplace of many Johnny Cash
hit recordings and enlisted the
help of top bluegrass-folk
songwriter and producer Tim
O'Brien to produce.
It was a huge honour to work
with Tim,'' Winstanley said.
Vanessa and I have been mass-
ive fans for a long time.''
The money for the album was
raised via crowd-funding web-
site Pledgeme. Tattletale Saints'
album project has the highest
amount raised by a band
through a New Zealand crowd-
funding site to date.

Showcase of talents
Worldly: NZTrio are poised to perform in Napier this month.
Tchaikovsky's epic piano trio
and a brand new work by New
Zealand composer Claire Cowan
feature in the programme for
NZTrio's Napier concert at the
Municipal Theatre this month.
Pianist Sarah Watkins said
the music for the Old World:
New World concert showcased
the musicians' talents.
It's a virtuosic programme
combining some of our favourite
works with new pieces.''
Four works feature in the con-
cert opening, with Bright
Sheng's evocative Four Move-
ments, a work Sarah describes
as a favourite of NZTrio and
including a new commission
from Cowan, Subtle Dances.
We performed one of Claire's
works and like it so much that
we wanted one of our own, so
commissioned this new piece,''
Sarah said, adding that the trio
received the work at the end of
It's going to be gorgeous.''
Subtle Dances has three
movements -- Subtle Dances, Be
Slow and Lie Low and Nerve
Lines. Each movement features
one of the trio's instruments.
Claire said that while she didn't
set out to do this, it turned out
that way. As I improvised on all
the instruments, I found a par-
ticularly strong idea presented
itself for each of them, which I
worked the other parts around''.
The Napier programme also
includes Tchaikovsky's massive
Piano Trio in A minor Opus 50
and American composer Ellen
Taaffe Zwilich's piano trio.
