Fiona Pears & Band
The Laboratory, Lincoln
Monday 27 February, 7pm

In clubs, theatres, iconic country halls and even a band rotunda - hugely popular violinist Fiona Pears and band will entertain audiences up and down the country this January and February.

Touring with Arts On Tour NZ, together with her husband, English record producer and musician Ian Tilley on piano, Pete Fleming on double bass and Burke Goffe on guitar, Fiona will play a mix of musical styles including tango, gypsy, Celtic, classical and jazz - some traditional, many her own compositions. Besides her amazing technique, Fiona knows how to enjoy herself on stage, and that enjoyment is contagious. She’s a crowd favourite.

"Banish from your minds all preconceptions of orthodoxy in the world of the violin. Fiona Pears has largely rewritten the script" - The NZ Herald.

The Laboratory will open exclusively for this ticketed event. The bar will be open with tapas and platters available on the night. Seats are limited, so do book a table by calling 325 3006 if you have purchased a ticket and want to ensure you get a great seat to dine before you enjoy the show.

Doors open 5.30 pm, performance starts at 7 pm. Tickets $20 at Eventfinda or book directly at The Laboratory.
