BOND STREET BRIDGE
Bond Street Bridge began in 2008 as the solo project of multi-instrumentalist and songsmith Sam Prebble, and since then the act has evolved into a dynamic collective including some of the most exciting musicians in the Auckland underground. Sam has become a fixture of the Auckland alternative folk scene, playing mandolin, fiddle and guitar with The Broken Heartbreakers, Reb Fountain's Bandits, and the Nina McSweeney Band, as well as appearing with artists as diverse as An Emerald City, Matt Langley, and Tim Guy, and recently co-founding the Wine Cellar Strings. In between recording and extensive touring, he drives a mobile library in West Auckland.
The summer of 2012/13 sees Bond Street Bridge touring New Zealand with the high-concept and critically-acclaimed show ‘The Explorer’s Club: Antarctica,’ a multi-media set including spoken-word storytelling and all-original songs dealing with the trials and tribulations of early Antarctic explorers Scott and Shackleton. The show was described in the Domion Post as 'a perfect evening of music,' and has played to sold-out houses at the Auckland, and Wellington Fringe Festivals, and in bar-rooms, theatres and community halls all over the country.
