Kiwigrass scoop @ Tamahere

Kiwigrass has scored a scoop with the world launch of the Lonely Heartstrings Band brand new CD  Smoke and Ashes at the Kiwigrass kick-off concert on Friday Night.

This spectacular concert will begin with all-female bluegrass band Hot Diggity, and local legends Hamilton County Bluegrass Band, followed by concerts by our three international headliners: Nine Mile Creek, Bluegrass Parkway and of course the Lonely Heartstrings Band.

Tamahere Community Hall

This show is generating a lot of local interest so the Friday Night BBQ, kick-off concert, and Smoke and Ashes launch is heading for a bigger venue up the road a little way,  at Tamahere Community Hall at 21 Devine Road.
