The Tribune (NZ) - - ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT - More de­tails are avail­able at kapitimu­sicfes­ti­

Kapiti kicks off NZ Mu­sic Month this week­end with its twelfth mu­sic fes­ti­val.

Spokesman Chris Crad­dock says the mu­sic marathon based at Rau­mati this week­end, and at Otaki the fol­low­ing week­end, opens with a cafe scene at Rau­mati’s No 6 Cafe at 6pm on Fri­day.

‘‘Open­ing the fes­ti­val on Fri­day night and on Satur­day at mid­day is young Peyton Morete.’’

The 13-year-old has been singing and play­ing in pub­lic since she was eight, and has been a re­gional Smoke­free­rock­quest fi­nal­ist.

The cafe scene con­tin­ues un­til late Satur­day and again on Sun­day even­ing.

On Sun­day from 11am – 4pm at Rau­mati’s Marine Gar­dens there’s Jazz in the Gar­dens open­ing with New Orleans style quar­tet Trio Plus fol­lowed by band Clas­sic Jazz at mid­day.

‘‘At 1pm there’s the 25-piece 1920s and 30s Lib­erty Swing Band, and from 2.30pm – 4pm a nine-piece called Brasso.’’

The fol­low­ing week­end sees reg­gae, funk and hip hop on Fri­day at The Tele in Otaki; rock, pop and blues on Satur­day with an open mu­sic jam on Sun­day 15.

Start­ing in 2004 as the Kapiti Mu­sic Marathon, the fes­ti­val was given a re­boot in 2012 as a multi-day, multi-venue fes­ti­val af­ter go­ing into re­cess in 2011.
