'Upstarts' are full of talent PROPHETIC DUO: Michael Keane and Shaun Blackwell of John the Baptist are opening this Friday at King Street live for The Warratahs. By PIERS FULLER If the Warratahs are the states- men of the New Zealand alterna- tive country scene, their support act on Friday night are the pre- cocious upstarts. Wellington folk country band, John the Baptist, have impressed audiences with their lively and enthusiastic performances and Wairarapa peo- ple are no strangers to their exuberant live shows. They played at the Gunslingers Ball at Carterton Events Centre in early May and a couple of members performed at the Leon- ard Cohen tribute at the same venue later that month. The same two members are playing at King Street Live on Friday. Shaun Blackwell is on guitars and vocals, but he also likes to bust out the harmonica and even has a turn on the fiddle. Michael Keane is adept on guitars and vocals but can also bring that Appalachian twang on banjo. For young guys, they cer- tainly have the musical chops to jump from instrument to instru- ment and belt out infectious origi- nals with impeccably tight timing. John the Baptist has been carving their own space in the New Zea- land music landscape since 2009, the band have been winning audiences with a sound that draws on many traditions while adhering to none. Immediately upon arrival the band generated a keen following with their folk/ country stylings and punk deliv- ery. Accomplished Masterton solo performer Bear Bailey is also opening for the main act. This King Street Live show is organised by Masterton-based music promotions and management company Up With People. Tickets for the this Friday, July 19 are $27.50 from www.dashtickets.co.nz Doors open 7.30pm.
