    Singing For Our Lives - this is the second concert in this series (the first being in May at St David in the Fields, Hillsborough) and again, it is a fundraising concert for The Auckland Women's Centre.

    The AWC lost a huge chunk of government funding for 2017, and considering the amazing job they do for Auckland women, we thought they were an awesome group to help out.

    The concert features 13 Auckland based musicians - all well known on the NZ folk scene - performing as "The House Band" and in smaller ensembles.

    The group consists of Anna Dunwoodie (harp), Linda Whitcombe (violin), Anna Percy (cello), Hanna Wiskari (alto sax), Margo Regan (box), Innes Asher (whistles), Kay McCabe (bass), Beverly Young (bodhran), Jean Reid (guitar), Karen Jones (guitar/harp), Elizabeth Bennett (harp), Harry Champion (guitar) and Ian Bartlett (bodhran/whistles) and we all sing too!

    Featuring a wide range of music - from strictly traditional, to definitely not traditional folk music - its the music of the people - well, our people anyway!

    For more details see:, to reserve tickets please contact Anna 

    Tickets also available at the door.

    Thank you to those who have already booked.

    Please don’t hesitate to contact me for any further enquiries.

    I am hoping this will be the most perfect HH yet. Thank you all for your patience with Margaret and my efforts to get it better and better over the past 5 years. We have been so grateful to have received all your feedback over this time and have certainly taken it onboard. No moving harps for the entire week…..bliss.
