The Wilding Pines are a Dunedin string band featuring the songwriting of Richard Dingwall and the instrumental virtuosity of Steve Barkman, Read Hudson and Lawrence O`Callaghan.
The Wilding Pines Revue has its origins in Wednesday night sessions with Richard, Read and Lawrence at Steve’s place. Read and Richard had both been members of the Dunedin bluegrass band Valley Bluegrass while Steve and Read are long time musical buddies having played together in many bands over the years, most recently in FFBH with Adrian Higgins and Barrie McDonald. Lawrence fronts his own blues trio The Cartwrights.
When they sat down to play all sorts of musical delights were discovered from Acker Bilk to old time fiddle tunes and ditties. To this Richard added a handful of newly minted songs.
In August last year, the band played a successful concert at the Dunedin Folk Club.
“One of the best nights of the year.” said one audience member.
In February they at the first of the Greendale concert season. A live album Telegraph Road will be released in August.
Since then Lawrence O’Callaghan has replaced Peter and the band have added new songs and tunes.
Singer, songwriter and choir leader Lisa Tui Jonathon joins the Revue to sing a couple of songs and to duet on a heartbreak ballad called “Fifty Words for Blue”
