Caitlin Smith & Aro Cancelled
Join us for an intimate night of stories in song at Fairfield House with Aro and Caitlin Smith
Aro will be sharing infectious new songs inspired by Aotearoa’s nature and wild life in te reo Māori and English. Husband and wife Emily and Charles’ show is intimate, engaging and atmospheric with songs and stories that celebrate community and a blending of cultures. Aro mai, Aro utu, aroha. (To face, to be faced, to love).
“Blending Emily’s honey-voiced jazz with Charles’ full throated percussive sound with shades of haka, Aro’s storytelling performance adds up to a warmth of experience, wholly original, anchored in Aotearoa New Zealand, that leave all who are present with the feeling of having been let in on a special secret.” Rosheen Fitzgerald (Common Room Gig Review)
Caitlin Smith has been described by Mike Alexander as having “a voice that imagination created”. When she sings at the keyboard her solo performances are mesmerizing and magical. Original songs are interspersed with covers penned by her many heroes and heroines amongst whom Joni Mitchell and Leonard Cohen are rated by Caitlin as her spiritual parents.
Caitlin Smith’s universe is predominantly sonic. Legally blind since birth, it is said she could sing before she could speak.
