Sonia & Nigel - MNZ Interview: It's A Wrap with Roger S02 / E06 - Sonia & Nigel

05 Aug 2023 // An interview by Roger Bowie


Roger raps with Sonia Wilson and Nigel Gavin in demi-francais. Hear from Sonia about what inspired her to create the most beautiful album of French songs in passionate obeisance to her hometown of Paris. And complement the songs with a booklet of art curated to reflect the songs.

And did you know that Nigel Gavin once belonged to Robert Fripp’s League of Crafty Guitarists? Did you know that the same Robert snuck into New Zealand once upon a time ago and has never been back? And did you know that a horse with a name was ridden across America by producer John Egenes and it features in Barbie? Crafty, horsey tales of great frippery…

 

About Sonia & Nigel

Sonia & Nigel are a multi-cultural acoustic duo featuring French-American Paris-born Sonia Wilson on vocals & ukulele and Kiwi-American virtuoso musician Nigel Gavin on 7-string guitar. After meeting and playing together for the first time at the Whare Flat Folk festival in Dunedin during Sonia’s first visit to New Zealand on a solo round-the-world trip in December 2014, the pair have since become a well-loved duo in the New Zealand folk music scene.

They weave French, Kiwi and American songs with their own original compositions and inspiration from their travels around the world.
