The vocal powerhouse behind seminal local band Kora, Laughton will take part in the A Story songs and present some brand new collaborative material with Fly My Pretties in the extended jam-session second half.

Returning from London especially for these last shows, Adi Dick was a rising star from The Return of Fly My Pretties with standout songs ‘Get Out’ and ‘Foresight’. Adi Dick went on to release his debut solo album Our Place (2007) before leaving New Zealand shores to ply his trade abroad in Europe.
Audience members can expect to be thrilled with the inclusion of these two special guests and extended shows that will stand as a celebration of the collaborative and creative efforts of Kiwi musicians.
The final Fly My Pretties cast includes: Barnaby Weir, Jarney Murphy, Mike Fabulous, Nigel Patterson (all The Black Seeds), Anna Coddington, Eva Prowse, L.A. Mitchell, Lisa Tomlins (Rhombus), Mara T.K. (Electric Wire Hustle), Nato, Paul McLaney (Gramsci), Riki Gooch and Rio Hunuki-Hemopo (both TrinityRoots), Ryan Prebble, Tessa Rain and Tom Watson (Cassette).
