Kiwigrass 2022 Cancelled.

It is with much sadness that, after the government announcement yesterday, we have decided to cancel Kiwigrass 2022.  Although technically 100 of us could gather at Paeroa Racecourse and have a socially distanced get together under the trees, we feel it is better to take the safer route and not put any of our bluegrass family at risk from this highly contagious variant that is getting past vaccines.  

In the meantime, if you need a Camp Kiwigrass songbook, or a festival t-shirt, flask, or drink bottle, drop me a line.  I can go into the online sales business to keep me out of trouble until we can start planning for 2023 back at Karāpiro or Paeroa.  Maybe we’ll even be able to have an act or two from overseas by then!

We are sending all our love to our friends and bluegrass family across the globe.  Be safe, keep in touch, and keep picking that beautiful music.
