Old Boy Carson Taare to perform original songs at Globe Theatre

    by PNBHS

Carson Taare was 9 when he started learning to play the guitar at Newbury School.

He didn't like it and would forget his guitar on purpose. But then the school bought one so he no longer had an excuse.

Taare, now 19, ended up enjoying those lessons and went on to play at an end-of-year concert. He was bitten with the performing bug.

The Palmerston North resident is now making firm strides towards a career as a singer/songwriter/musician.

He is performing at the Globe Theatre on August 5 with a repertoire that no longer is just covers but his own songs.

He finished at Palmerston North Boys' High School at the end of 2019 and started working in the building industry. Last October he switched to refrigeration and air conditioning general labouring or "fridgie".

"You learn quite a lot, it's quite interesting."
