Even Angels get the Blues

‘Even Angels get the Blues’ is the title of Terry Sarten’s touring show. The name came from the realisation that, on checking the set list, at least half a dozen of the songs he has written reference angels in some way. One of the songs that many audiences have heard (and sung along too) is called ‘Don’t Surrender’. “This was written at a time when my daughter was heading of too University with the added dimension that the Christchurch earthquake had just happened – both requiring strength and the confidence to hold onto your identity”.

Heavy but Beautiful

The single cone resonator guitar that Terry plays is a handmade instrument build by Russ Mattson from Nelson New Zealand. It is a heavy but beautiful guitar and a delight to play. It has a warm ringing tone that sings when playing slide.
