The Nor’Westers have been together as a quartet for 6 years. We first got together to participate in the Valentine's Day sing outs. Our members are: Tenor: Roger Southcott - Lead: Lyndsay Pearson - Baritone: Carl McGregor - Bass: Graeme King. Prior to his moving to the North Island, Mark Smith was the Bass.
We first competed at the Barbershop Harmony NZ Convention in Invercargill in 2013 - coming 3rd in the New Quartet Section.
We perform regularly at The Plainsmen Concerts. At the 2014 Christmas Concert we sang - I Saw Mummy Kissing Santa Claus. We have recently performed at the wedding of Arthur McGregor and Emma Trott at Trott's Garden in Ashburton. We sang The Wedding Song (There Is Love) by Paul Stookey of Peter, Paul and Mary fame plus the Barbershop Polecat - Let Me Call You Sweetheart.
