Elder Neil L Anderson, one of the 12 apostles in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, addressed 400 church members aged 18 to 30. He spoke of people he knew who had shown faith and courage, including a teenager who had most of his face torn away in a gun accident. Over six years he had 50 operations of his face. At 19, he served as a missionary, returned, went to college, got mar- ried and had a child. Elder Anderson encouraged young people to be not afraid -- only believe''. Trust in the Lord and keep his commandments. Dig deep and pray sin- cerely and your faith will increase.'' Elder Anderson is based at the church's headquarters in the United States and had a big impact on those who attended. Blake Leitch, 19, says the apostle brought the Holy Spirit with him in full force''. Kelly-Anne Lineham says it was an honour to be in the same room as an apostle, hear him speak and be part of the choir that sang for him. The Quorum of the 12 Apostles is the second- highest body in the church. The church says like the apostles of ancient times, they travel the world to strengthen and encourage church members, organise new congregations and con- duct church business. Folk trio make it into award finals Inventive approach: Devonport trio Forbidden Joe are Folk Tui Award finalists for best folk album. From left: Frances Dickinson, Emily Giles and Alex Borwick. LISTINGS: Depot Artspace, Wet Colour by Rowan Klevstul, until February 10 Northart Gallery, Stigma by Michael Bradley, until January 30 Lakehouse Arts Centre, Auckland Watercolour Society, until January 30 Devonport folk trio Forbidden Joe are making waves in the traditional music scene. They are Folk Tui Award finalists for NZ Best Folk Album 2010. Band members Alex Bor- wick, Frances Dickinson and Emily Giles formed at the end of 2007. They met through the Devonport Folk Club on Mount Victoria. Alex says they came together over a desire to take traditional folk music and give it a contemporary sound.. They have a really strange instrumentation of concer- tina, cello, banjo, trombone and voices, he says. There are no guitars in sight so our sound is reason- ably sparse and quirky.'' They each have quite dif- ferent backgrounds in music. Emily was practically born into the folk scene, while Frances discovered it in her teens and myself only recently,'' he says. Alex says one of the best things about the folk scene is its inclusiveness and lack of egos. Folkies gather to enjoy good music, he says. There is a definite interest in the history and heritage of the music whilst also looking to the future.'' He says the folk scene is definitely a niche market and it is bigger for younger acts. They're usually thinking outside the folk square'' so appeal to a broader audi- ence,'' he says. Forbidden Joe received funding from CreativeNZ to record In Mourning For The Pride Of Petravore based on the success of their debut EP Oh What a Queer Sensation. The Tui Award will be presented at the Auckland Folk Festival during the final concert on January 30.

REVIVAL FOR CLUB In the past few years, folk has made an explosion into mainstream music and Devonport folk music club has noticed it too. There is a wide range of people involved in the Devonport Folk Music Club, young and old. The club meets every Monday at the Bunker on Mount Victoria where it has been home to music lovers for over 30 years. Hilary Condon says she joined the club because it was somewhere to go as there were not many night clubs on the shore. "There has been a lot of new interest in folk music, and lots of the young ones are singing Bob Dylan,'' says Ms Condon, the club's secretary for 15 years. One of the club's younger members James Hilford, 32, says folk music has always been there but more people are listening to it. Every year the Auckland Folk Festival attracts 2000 people and this is where Mr Hilford's love of the music came about. Shows and concerts will be happening non- stop at the bunker during January and February. Visit www.devonport directory.co.nz/ realmusic.htm or phone 445-2227 for more information.
