Blackmore and more for concert
It’s part of Palmy’s summer tradition – the annual free concert in The Square.
Just four days remain before top and emerging New Zealand musical artists Ginny Blackmore, Draxproject, Mae Valley and Stevie Tonks, are joined by crowdpleasing local performers Libby Offord and Amy Hunt for four hours of top entertainment.
Ginny’s recently-released album Over The Moon features her debut number-one, doubleplatinum selling single Bones, the platinum selling number-one duet with Stan Walker Holding You, the summer stunner Love Me Anyway, and her most recent creation, Under My Feet.
No doubt these songs will feature during her headline performance on Sunday. music-duo, Abby Christodoulou and Hannah Cosgrove, who were put together during the national television show X-Factor, have just released their debut single Bright Side, a rich blend of country and pop which is achieving extensive airplay throughout New Zealand.
Their early cover of If I Die Young reached the New Zealand Top 10, and two other songs have made the New Zealand Top 20.
Another X-Factor success story is singer Stevie Tonks.
An outstanding vocalist, Stevie has continued building the momentum gained from his X-Factor exposure. With an EP due for release soon, he has a strong student following and has honed his live performance skills during several tours.
Libby Offord has been honing her talent as an outstanding young singer/songwriter and Amy Hunt will perform her own, original songs.
Last year’s concert brought an impressive attendance, and Tony says this year’s event promises to be even bigger and better.
A variety of food and drink will be available on site, however concert-goers have been encouraged to bring along their own picnic, rugs and deck chairs to enjoy the outdoor soiree.
Blackmore has written songs for Christina Aguilera, Adam Lambert and Nicole Scherzinger.
Sunday’s concert from 2pm to 6pm is alcohol and smokefree, as well as family and student friendly.
