Songs & Stories From The Ice: On The Road With Warren Maxwell

Warren Maxwell, inaugural New Generation Award recipient, is radically honest, vulnerable and has a whole lot of love to share. In May, we went on the road with Warren to Christchurch, Queenstown, Auckland and Wellington presenting intimate concerts in the homes of generous patrons.
