Kiwiana Open Mic wrap up


Thanks to all who joined us for our Kiwiana-themed open mic night. Our readers showed that there are many ways to express the New Zealand identity – yes, it’s much more than sheep and tussocks and beetroot on your burger. There was a fair bit of James K Baxter bandied about, but that’s always a good thing, regardless of circumstances.

Congratulations to Laura who took top prize with her late-night  composition New Zealand Free Association.

Thanks to our sponsor, Olssens, for providing us with a stellar bottle of Nipple Hill Pinot Noir to give away, and to Wanaka Beats 107.3 for lending us an amp and mic so not a word was missed.
