The Timaru Library presents a free concert by the internationally-acclaimed American folk duo Hungrytown, who are now on their third tour of New Zealand. Hungrytown's songs and music have appeared in numerous television programmes, including the Independent Film Channel's, Portlandia, Comedy Central's The Daily Show and Netflix's new hit comedy, Lady Dynamite; as well as in various documentaries and major sporting events.
Hungrytown is made up of Rebecca Hall and Ken Anderson, from the northeastern state of Vermont. They have been touring professionally for nearly 15 years and are currently on a seven-month mega-tour, performing more than 70 shows from January through July. Their travels will take them coast-to-coast through the US, then onto New Zealand, followed by their tenth tour of the United Kingdom.

Hungrytown's third and latest album, Further West, made the top 10 on the American Folk DJ charts for two months, and at least 14 "Best of 2015" lists.

David Strassman's iTedE

Venue : Theatre Royal, 124 Stafford St, Timaru, South Canterbury
Date : Thursday 16 March 2017 7:00pm
Tickets available from Ticketek + In-store @ Newmans Music Works.

International comedy star, David Strassman’s brand new show, iTedE is an uproarious take on our technology-laden lives. The sharp-tongued Chuck Wood and loveable Ted E. Bare have been thrust into the world of social media, constantly on their iPads and iPhones, not interacting with the real world. With everyone connected to social media and the internet 24/7, will Strassman get them back under control?
