Jon Sanders NZ Tenalach tour

NZ/Ireland based guitar bouzouki uke player Jon Sanders returns to New Zealand in October 2023 with a  free flowing nufolk music band featuring accordion, clarinet and singing in a show called Tenalach. 

Tenalach is an old Irish term which describes a state of deep connection with the land, water and air that allows us to hear the earth sing. The music is sometimes Celtic in feel, sometimes contemporary, written over the last 4 years. Creating these soundscapes with Jon will be his daughter Jenny OS who sings and heralds from west Kerry, Hannah Wiskari Griffiths on clarinet/sax (who set up the NZ branch of the Ethno world music project) and Sophia Bidwell from Christchurch on piano accordion. Sophia is a prolific session player and music teacher in Canterbury and beyond. 

The Tenalach project represents an invitation to reconnect with nature on a deeper level, in a world increasingly controlled by technologies and their limited binary outcome. Already recognised for his “ deeply meditative, impishly playful, quantum leaping” style,  Jon says these new soundscapes and original songs feature aspects of contemporary life clearly mirrored in the balance of natural ecosystems. “This is an invocation to spend time in the natural environment, away from the digital machine and to reconnect on a deeper non- intrusive level”, he says.
