Kim and Dusty
Jun 29 @ 2:06 am – 3:06 am

9d70fc_dac335c198634d8ca2b890245579b973Acoustic Duo, Kim and Dusty, have been bringing their whisky harmonies to Wellingtonians since November 2013 when Dusty moved to Brooklyn, the heart of the Wellington’s country music scene.

The duo play a blend of Country, Blues, Bluegrass and Folk. Audiences are captivated by their tight harmonies and easygoing nature onstage. Kim and Dusty always deliver something for everyone with dirty blues, lonesome ballads and high paced bluegrass standards. Regular performers at several venues around Wellington they also make time to tour to other towns around the lower North Island.

Kim and Dusty also play alongside Rob Joass and Hamish Graham as the Hardcore Troubadours.

Kim and Dusty may or may not be supported by The Pipi Pickers. But given how these things go, they probably will.
