World music in a true folk roots fusion! Acoustic Americana meets Celtic Spirit! Here come Across the Great Divide, performing traditional, contemporary and original songs and tunes from Celtic, Scandinavian and Americana roots. 


The group features guitarist and arguably New Zealand’s finest dobro player, Tony Burt, internationally respected Swedish saxophonist, Hanna Wiskari-Griffiths, and music specialist and tradition bearer of Scots songs and tunes, on harp, guitar, and vocals, Karen Jones.


Unknowingly you are drawn into their special Transatlantic musical world. Original and traditional tunes and airs, and Americana original compositions all receive the same skill and passion in their delivery until you are no longer aware of their different musical roots, nor any divide at all. An Across the Great Divide concert isn’t a quiet affair. Strap yourself in for a wild, toe tapping and emotionally laden journey, perfectly held together by their passion for their traditions.
