Don McGlashan at Smith’s Alternative

Concert or Performance

13 Oct 2022 Once Only Event

“He always brings an empathetic, soulful pen and sound that makes his highly developed, moody-melodic pop so deeply involving, his sure voice conveying care, desire, longing, and regret. Consistently superlative.”
Big Takeover Magazine – New York 2021

Someone once said that if New Zealand music was a house, Don McGlashan would be a load-bearing beam. From Blam Blam Blam, The Front Lawn, through to The Mutton Birds & his four acclaimed solo albums, that beam remains unvarnished & as strong as ever.

Don McGlashan is one of New Zealand’s most highly regarded songwriters and musicians, best known as the co-founder & frontman of the iconic and internationally acclaimed The Mutton Birds. He has five entries in APRA’s 100 Best Ever NZ Songs & has won numerous awards, including two APRA Silver Scrolls (for NZ’s top songwriter). He has a long-standing working relationship with Neil Finn, & has toured as both a member of & opening act for Crowded House. He has collaborated with Paul Kelly, Johnny Marr, members of Wilco, Radiohead & the Violent Femmes. He has scored over a dozen feature films & five TV series, including Jane Campion’s An Angel At My Table & the British Film Institute’s 100 Years of New Zealand Cinema.
