Year 9 TALENT QUEST 4226296AA Humble musicians: Violinist Richard Adams, left, and guitarist Nigel Gavin are no prima donnas. Musos loved by audiences, peers By TASHA BLACK A musical Jedi'' will be jam- ming at Lembas Cafe on Sunday. Auckland guitarist Nigel Gavin, who has played with the Nairobi Trio, the Jews Brothers, Bravura, and featured on albums by Wayne Gillespie, Whirimako Black and Robert Fripp, is stopping in Kapiti as part of a nationwide tour. Paul Bognuda, from Moa Music, said Gavin, somewhat unusually, plays a seven string guitar, not a six string. He's a musician's musician. The public love him because they hear the music and think that's great, but musicians look onhimasabitofaguru.He really is top-notch. Not only does Joe Public love his music but a lot of musicians are in awe of him, bit of a Jedi,'' Bognuda said. He is not as famous as he is good. He's a very humble guy, so he doesn't push his boat out a lot.'' Gavin's music is folk roots- based and can get quite out there,'' Bognuda said. It goes from contemporary folk to avant garde.'' He will be joined by violinist Richard Adams, who is also a gifted painter whose work has been exhibited internationally, Bognuda said. [Adams] quite often gets up and wanders around the crowd playing his violin, a bit like a sort of gypsy minstrel, quite entertaining.'' Adams has also played for many years in the popular Nairobi Trio and is co-founder of Neon Quaver. [Gavin and Adams are] the sort of people who aren't prima donnas. They invite people up to jam, and that comes from [Gavin's] kind of patience and understanding of up and coming musicians.'' Sunday 3pm, Lembas Cafe, Poplar Ave, Raumati South, folding koha. Published author: Kate Lattey with her first book Flying Changes. Pony book lover writes her own By TASHA BLACK An Otaihanga woman has taken some of her own experiences with horses and turned them into a young adults' novel. Flying Changes by Kate Lattey, 29, is a pony book aimed at girls between 12 and 16 years old. It's a story about a girl who lives in England and after her mother dies she moves to New Zealand to live with her estranged father, and he promises her if she comes over she can have her own pony, which she couldn't afford to have in England,'' Lattey said. Growing up with horses, Lattey said she has been reading pony books for as long as she can remember. In 2007 she worked in England looking after horses. It was just so different from the way that I had had my ponies [in New Zealand] where they were in the back yard, you made mistakes and you learned from them. Whereas [in England] these girls they just had to show up and ride.'' Lattey has also worked for five summers in the United States as a camp counsellor, where she wrote stories for the children she was working with. Lattey, who teaches at Waikanae Pony Club, has self- published the book with a US based company and is selling it online and in hard copy. It took me several years [to write] just because I never really sat down and dedicated myself to1 it, it was just done in bits and pieces when I had spare time.'' Publishing was a scary'' pro- cess, but Lattey is already eyeing up future stories and hopes Flying Changes will become a series. It is available online, including on Amazon and Trade Me; at Moby Dickens, Paraparaumu Beach; One Black Horse, Te Horo, or email email@example.com.
