Music veterans heading down South


Decades of musical experience have made New Zealand musicians Eddie Low and Kevin Greaves great entertainers.
The two Kiwi music greats are out on the road with their ‘‘Heading South’’ tour, playing in South Island venues from Picton to Balclutha.
Low and Greaves will bring their inimitable style to Dunedin, when they play at the Taieri Bowling Club in Mosgiel on Saturday, September 24, at 7.30pm. Special guest for the evening will be multi-award winning Dunedin singer-songwriter Dave Coleclough.
Christchurch-based Low has been involved in the New Zealand music scene since the early 1960s, when he played in showbands and with the Quintikis.
Low appeared in the film Don’t Let It Get You (1966) with the Quintikis, Howard Morrison and Kiri Te Kanawa. He later went on to record albums in the United States, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.
In 2006, Low was appointed a Member of the New Zealand Order of Merit (MNZM) for services to music, in the Queen’s Birthday Honours.
Auckland-based Greaves is one of 14 children born to New Zealand country music great, the late Rusty Greaves. He performed on stage at the age of 5 and started his professional entertaining career at the age of 14.
During his career, Greaves has performed with some of Nashville’s top entertainers, and across 30 states in the United States.
