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.
