Forbidden Joe


"With their eclectic repertoire of traditional and original music, Forbidden Joe are coming to town to entertain you with their "wicked new folk sound".

Already being hailed by New Zealand’s folk scene as "the next big thing," Forbidden Joe’s dynamic arrangements and funky grooves, spiced with influences of Jazz, Celtic, European, and Soul make for a quirky show of songs and tunes.

The cheeky and effervescent Frances Dickinson heads the line up (hailed by Alice Murray of bFM as an "up and coming folk superstar") with smouldering vocals and fiery concertina. Alongside Frances, the versatile and soulful grooves of Emily Giles (Cello/Vocals) and the crankin riffs of Alex Borwick
(Banjo/Trombone/Vocals) complete this-one-of-kind musical menagerie."

Band Members:
Frances Dickinson (vocals, concertina, dunbeq, bodhran, fiddle)
Emily June Giles (cello, vocals)
Alex Borwick (banjo, trombone, vocals)

Hi all, I would hope that this will be without doubt THE most important date of your year coming up!

Forbidden Joe are releasing their debut EP "Oh, what a queer sensation..."

And you are all most cordially invited to come and celebrate!

Doors open from 7pm so make sure you're there early to get a seat. Tickets are $10 on the door.

If you miss out cause you cant make it on the 14th you can order your copy of "Oh, what a queer sensation..." directly from the band by replying to this email. This option sees all proceeds going to the band.

Alternatively, copies will also be available from NZ music website Amplifier, Slowboat Records in Wellington, The CD Store in Devonport, as well as a handful of other stores around the country (details coming soon).
