“A pyrotechnic display of dazzling virtuosity” – The Northern Advocate

‘A Quantum Leaping Musical Curiosity” – The Irish Times

The Alpaca Social Club is the bringing together of two kindred musical souls. Both musical adventurers and travellers, on different instruments and across a multitude of styles, Jon Sanders and Craig Denham are something of a live phenomenon.

With strong roots in acoustic music, Celtic trad and various world styles and playing “The music they love from wherever that comes from” they’re always ready to take live music into unexpected places with skill, humour, passion and a sense of adventure.

This November/December sees them take the road in NZ to promote their debut self-titled album recorded in Prague and finished earlier this year.
Come and be beguiled.
