Coun­try star per­form­ing

Matamata Chronicle - - News -

Hamil­ton Coun­try en­ter­tainer Joy Adams will be guest artist for the Mata­mata Coun­try Mu­sic Club on Fri­day, June 19.

Joy has been ac­tively in­volved in the coun­try mu­sic scene for a num­ber of years and is just in the process of record­ing her 16th al­bum. Her reper­toire is ex­ten­sive. Coun­try mu­sic will al­ways be her first choice but she is equally com­fort­able belt­ing out clas­sic rock’n’roll hits from Brenda Lee and Con­nie Fran­cis.

She also has a great love for nos­tal­gia and com­edy, so ex­pect to hear a com­bi­na­tion of all.

Mu­sic is her full­time ca­reer these days and she trav­els ex­ten­sively around New Zealand do­ing her own shows, as well as fit­ting in with con­certs and fes­ti­vals.

In Novem­ber she will be re­turn­ing to the South Is­land and has 17 shows and func­tions booked, so life for Joy is never dull.

In 1990 she was first recog­nised for her song­writ­ing abil­i­ties tak­ing out Best Coun­try Song, Best Gospel Song, Most Promis­ing Song­writer and then 1990 NZCMA Song­writer of the Year.

Many awards have fol­lowed and she has trav­elled ex­ten­sively through­out Aus­tralia, Den­mark, Nor­way and Ger­many where she is classed as a tra­di­tional singer and has a good loyal fol­low­ing.
