2020 Music Tour of New Zealand

2020 Music Tour of New Zealand

With John Howie and Gill Delaney

The 'Land of the Long White Cloud' – it’s a classic Kiwi understatement if there ever was one. And while most travellers are drawn here for those epic experiences out in nature – the open spaces, the dusted peaks, the lakes that pop with blue and make a mockery of Instagram filters – that stuff is just the tip of the glacier. All this with the addition of sensational music along the way. Includes a host of concerts & other music events including special performance by landmark NZ group the Hamilton County Bluegrass Band.

Tour dates: 10 - 25 February 2020

This comprehensive 16 day tour visits the most spectacular and interesting places in New Zealand, including Auckland, Bay of Islands, Rotorua, Wellington, Christchurch, Dunedin, Milford Sound and Queenstown. As you travel around you will be entertained by some of NZ’s finest musicians.

You will be entertained by New Zealanders Annette Hawkins and Kim Copedo who are each country singers in their own right, both having solo CDs. In 2000 they decided to combine their singing form the duo Annette & Kim. Since then they have won industry awards, appeared at countless country music festivals NZ & Australia, and released several duo albums.

Also performing for us are the Hamilton County Bluegrass Band. They exploded onto the New Zealand folk and country music scene in 1968, the first group to popularise bluegrass music in NZ. In its heyday, through regular TV appearances, the HCBB became one of NZ’s best loved musical acts. The band toured Australia, with Slim Dusty, in the 1970s, inspiring much Aussie interest in bluegrass music. The band still holds a special place in Kiwi (and Australian) hearts, with a finger-pickin’ good traditional & 'originals' repertoire.
