While he could never be accused of being fashionable in any way, the dungaree-clad, heavilly bearded seventy-something Steve is now one of the UK’s top live draws.
And he’s headed to NZ to play ONE SHOW ONLY – at Mangawhai Tavern at the end of December.
His show has been described by reviewers as a ‘wonderfully sincere and surprisingly intimate performance that might just as well have taken place in a stomping bourbon soaked roadhouse’, and Seasick Steve as ‘a man, a band, an idea, an ideal, a truth, a poet, a master storyteller.’
Steven Wolt – aka Seasick Steve has spent much of his life as a bona-fide box-car jumping Ramblin’ Man, suffering the deprivations of homelessness, domestic abuse and poverty. He’s even been a carnie. As he says himself: “Hobos are people who move around looking for work, tramps are people who move around but don’t look for work, and bums are people who don’t move and don’t work. I’ve been all three.”
