Kia ora! This month’s show is packed with local talent! I was lucky enough to bump into Astrid Nielsch, Featherston’s resident polymath, at a hastily convened veggie and produce swap at the Feathesrton Community Centre, and she was good enough to share some of her wonderful harp music with me, a little snippet of which turns up in tonight’s ReCooper8. My coup d’art, however, is my interview with Tania Williams, a Featherston artist and art teacher who has a wonderful exhibition at Colours for Art Gallery in Kuripuni, Masterton. And of course, the excitement of the Greytown Arts Festival continues to buzz in the background – I give you a quick run through of some of the highlights of the Festival’s programme.
Many thanks to Peter Jackson (not the PJ, I’m pretty certain of that.. though I could be wrong…) of Featherston for contacting me via Facebook with details of the Rimutaka Country Music Group, which meets on the fourth Saturday of the month from 1.00 – 4.30 pm at the Featherston Community Centre. It is an open mike/black board format and entry costs $2.00 (this includes afternoon tea). Their next gathering is on 27 Oct and anyone who enjoys performing or just listening to country is welcome. I am really keen for more of this kind of content on ReCooper8 – there is so much going on in our tiny town, and the wider region, that I would love to help plug via my show, which has a growing listenership! So, if you have an event, activity, or similar happening, contact me via Facebook or this blog.
Enjoy the show, brought to you by Ladybird Early Childcare Centre in Greytown, ReCooper8’s new sponsor!
