It's the first day of May – that means NZ Music Month 2013begins.  Thirty-one days of music across our clubs, libraries, airwaves, screens of all sizes, schools, parks, and theaters starts today.

NZ Music Month Manager Simon Woods says "There is a wonderful array of music events across the country this May, celebrating our music and our music makers. After all, NZ Music Month is a cultural celebration."

Celebrations are kicking off in both islands today.  At noon on the steps of the Auckland Central Library, Hon Nikki Kaye will officially launch the event, followed by students from the East Tamaki School Ukulele Band and Sistema Aotearoa players performing, including their version of the single 'Come On Home' by Titanium – who will also be in attendance. 

Additionally performing is Waimarie Smith with her Hook, Line & Singalong winning song 'Paradise'. 

From 7:00pm at the Christchurch Central Library, the Christchurch City Council are hosting a free show to launch their programme of events.  The Eastern, just home from their Australian tour, perform alongside Katie Thompson andLuckless.
There are other events up and down the country – check out your favourite radio station, gig guide and local papers for news about what is happening in your area.
