Darlings of the folk festival circuit, The Spooky Men’s Chorale, are coming back to New Zealand for the first time since 2012 after amazing audiences with their genre-bending acapella at festivals and shows worldwide.
The Spooky Men's Chorale are a group of Australian male singers. Most reside in the Blue Mountains region of New South Wales, but some are from Western Australia.
Their repertoire consists largely of songs either written or arranged by their director (or 'spookmeister') Stephen Taberner, on topics ranging from power tools to covers of ABBA songs. They also perform traditional Georgian music, a major influence on their compositions, harmonies and vocal style.
The group performs in a humorous, idiosyncratic manner that is informed by archetypical male behaviours and demeanour.
