Midge McCleary 4:30

facebookWaipawa born and raised, Midge is back with a jazzy new album ‘Sugar’ after months touring locally and abroad.

Most recently Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam.

Over 10years of touring, four albums and averaging 200 shows a year Midge has developed an engaging blend of blues funk folk jazz based on his percussive, finger-­‐style guitar playing.



He sets up a big stompbox groove, overlays jazzy vocals and guitar featuring alternate tunings, slapping bass lines and appegiated chord progressions.

Midge can be toe tapping upbeat one minute, introspective thought provoking the next.
