New Zealand country music legend, John Grenell, of Welcome to our World fame, is joined by his four children – Oakley, Redford, Denver and Amiria – in a very special performance for the Nelson Arts Festival.

Discovered in his teens, Grenell Snr, or John Hore as he was known then, quickly rose to stardom and by the age of 19 had sold 100,000 records. Over the next two decades, he performed around the world, on several TV shows, at special events and won many industry awards.

John’s children are also a talented bunch, who have earned acclaim in their own right in various musical genres and performed worldwide. Growing up on the family farm in Whitecliffs, Canterbury with their parents running family music festivals, the children were inspired by the wide variety of the music they were exposed to.

Oakley and Redford went on to study jazz and Oakley now teaches and produces music in Melbourne. Redford was the founding drummer in renowned kiwi band Shapeshifter. Denver has forged a career in film and sound engineering, while Amiria soon followed her older brothers and has established an award-winning successful solo career winning the Best Folk Album at the 2012 NZ Music Awards.

Join the Grenell family for what will be an incredible night of great music!
