Andrew and Kirsten London and Nils Olsen perform next week at the Royal Wanganui Opera House.

Andrew and Kirsten London along with Ian and Moira Campbell of Legal Tender delighted a Whanganui audience at the RSA when they performed for Brain Injury Whanganui in July.

Audiences loved Andrew London's lyrics and laid-back singing along with ever so smooth Nils Olsen's saxophone and clarinet solos when they toured previously with Hot Club Sandwich.

Now in the Sandwich tradition they're joined by Andrew's wife Kirsten on bass to pronounce on the minutiae of middle class, middle aged, Middle Earth concerns, delivered in a deceptively innocuous 1940s swing style.

Over 20 years of touring has enabled songwriter London to gather material from the shearing sheds of Southland to the boardrooms of Auckland, leaving him free to pronounce on pretentious socialites, modern parenthood, male insecurities, the Internet, and much much more.

Audiences are warned to "expect intermittent forays into folk, blues, country and hip-hop - plus poignancy and pathos from the Beatle-esque harmonies provided by Kirsten and Nils".

Andrew London Trio, Wednesday, October 11 at 7.30pm, at Royal Wanganui Opera House.
Adult $28, Senior $25, Friend OH $23, Student $15. Book at RWOH or online at royaloperahouse.co.nz.
