Don McGlashan is one of our best-known and most highly regarded songwriters and performers. It’s 14 years since he stood on the Festival stage at the Glenroy to a capacity crowd.

Don McGlashan has helped write the soundtrack for a generation of New Zealanders; with Blam Blam Blam he penned Don’t Fight It, Marsha, It’s Bigger Than Both Of Us and There Is No Depression In New Zealand; for The Front Lawn - How You Doing and Andy, and with the Mutton Birds he gave us Dominion Road and Anchor Me. More recent songs include Bathe In The River, Toy Factory Fire and Lucky Stars.

This year sees Don working on his upcoming fourth solo album. At the Festival he’ll be showcasing some new songs from that album, as well as performing classic McGlashan.

He’ll be joined by long-time friend and collaborator Chris O’Connor from the Phoenix Foundation, one of this country’s finest drummer/multi-instrumentalists.

McGlashan is that rare musician who only ever reminds us of himself.
