Nelson Arts Festival presents THOMAS OLIVER & BAND

Nelson Arts Festival presents THOMAS OLIVER & BAND

Known for his slide guitar-playing skills, tender vocals and engaging demeanour on stage, Thomas Oliver plays a distinctive blend of roots, soul, folk and electronic music.

Internationally recognised as one of the world's leading players of the Weissenborn lap-steel guitar, Oliver and his band create a live show that will take you with them from delicate and introspective, to bold and triumphant.

Thomas's songs embody what it means to be human, and he and his band embody what it means to play live.

"...it's the sort of music that stops you in your tracks and demands your attention." SARAH KIDD, AMBIENT LIGHT
