As reported in a previous post – Rosy Tin Teacaddy are to play at the Tarawera Commemoration evening on Saturday 12th June 2010.
Billy Earl & Betty Grey are the creative geniuses behind the indie-folk band, Rosy Tin Teacaddy. As apart of the Wild creations programme they have come up with the inspiring idea of creating a new collection of songs based on their experiences, the land, and the people and stories of Tarawera.
The Wild Creations residency programme is a partnership between Creative NZ (Provides the funding) and the Department of Conservation (Host the artists) allowing great folks like Billy & Betty the opportunity to get away from it all and do what they do best – create!
The commemoration of the Tarawera eruption is run annually at the Buried Village on the first weekend following the anniversay (10th June 1886).

The evening involves a couple of presentations by Anne Summerville (Rotorua Museum) and Phil Andrews (Historian/Author). Also, a special appearance by Rosy Tea Tincaddy (Billy Earl & Betty Grey) from the DOC/Creative New Zealand Wild Creations programme. They will be playing a number of their tracks that have been created during there stay in the area.
This will be a great chance to see them live. But don’t despair if Saturday doesn’t work for you. They are planning a gig during there final stay in the area (Rotorua) in August which all will be welcome. Details to come.
Hope to see you there!
