Festivals & Concerts
As an experienced festival and concert artist, Harry Harrison regularly performs and produces concert events around New Zealand performing shows for Christchurch International Jazz and Blues Festival, Christchurch Arts Festival, Neslon Arts Festival, Nelson, Tauranga and Queenstown Jazz Festivals. In addition to this are numerous performances with Auckland Philharmonia, Wellington Vector and Christchurch Symphony Orchestras, showcasing jazz and popular music.
Since 2008 Harry has been involved in producing large scale blues and roots concerts for the Christchurch International Jazz and Blues Festival. ‘Voice of the
Blues’, ‘Diggin’ the Roots’ and ‘Nothin But the Blues’ have filled concert venues and gained standing ovations. These major productions have bought together national and local artists in a celebration of the artistry and diversity that is Americana music. Harry has a longtime passion for bottle neck and lap style slide playing, making him one of New Zealand’s finest exponents.
