The Paekākāriki Blues (The Coral Blues) is inspired by both Deborah Henson-Conant’s solo harp work New Blues, and the vibrant and virtuoso harmonica player Coral Trimmer. Coral Trimmer and Michelle Velvin first performed together as soloists with the Kapiti Concert Orchestra performing the second movement of Dorothea Franchi’s Concertino for harmonica, harp and strings in 2020.
