Lindsey Shields is a Dunedin based singer and songwriter with her own take on things personal and political, on topics as diverse as Harrison Ford and the Menopause. An avid traveller, she has found recent travel constraints have spawned a few new themes. 

 

Earlier musical appearances include being a guest at the Australian National Folk festival in Canberra and the Vancouver Island Music Fest. Lindsey has featured at the Auckland Folk Festival and performed at several other New Zealand folk music festivals and clubs as well as house concerts and folk gatherings in the UK. She has also made radio and TV appearances.

Lindsey is currently a member of the inter-provincial group Folkalyptica and plays occasionally with the Irish band Erin St. Previous involvement in the Dunedin music scene includes creating vocal harmonies and making choreographed fun in the a cappella group Rhonda and the Ravers, singing jazz standards with the Dunedin City Jazz Orchestra, performing, recording and touring with the Pioneer Pog ‘n’ Scroggin Bush Band and playing in the Central Otago duo Fandango

 

Lindsey has produced two solo albums, For The Trees and Echoes
