Local bluegrass band T-Bone is releasing their debut album Good ‘n Greasy this week, which will be followed by a jaunt around the North Island kicking off at the end of the month.

The ensemble is an eclectic bunch: a mandolin-playing ex-chef from the Far North, a fiddle-playing wine importer from New Jersey, a guitar-slinging laboratory assistant from Taranaki, a gardening double bassist from Karori, and a Dublin-born spearfishing songwriter.

Gerry Paul, the aforementioned songwriter and the group’s co-founder, has toured the world with some of the biggest names in folk music. These days he lives in Northland, where he also manages the Turner Centre arts venue in Kerikeri.
