New Zealand Music Month kicks off and we will be revelling in some of New Zealand's most memorable songs. This concert will be an exploration and journey into Kiwi music, including heritage trails that wind and amble through the scenic legacy that is NZ music.

We will recall some great stars that have travelled before us and given us the accelerator to rev up our musical engines, as well as some more recent hits that have been awarded acknowledgements in the music industry. We all know that Kiwi music is truly under the global spotlight these days, tonight it will be the Folk Club stage lights shining on it! This will be a celebration of home-grown musical hits, and you will recognise them all. We are excited to bring you this night of NZ's most playable and memorable songs brought to you by some of the Christchurch best acts.

The common thread that links the songs is their New Zealandness and that they have been recognised by the public as a hit through the eras. These are songs you would hear playing on a jukebox in a country pub, at a summer barbecue, and they are the ones we sing along loudly with at the rugby. Recall our musical heritage with songs by, Hog Snort Rupert; Shona Laing, John Rowles, Dragon, Dinah Lee, John Hanlon, Pixie Williams, Dave Dobbin, The Crocodiles, Tiki Taane, Blerta and Ray Colombus, as well as some other surprises.

Come and enjoy this meander down the streets of NZ nostalgia as we celebrate the wealth of our musical creativity.
