Dunedin Public Libraries Don’t Miss a Beat - NZ Music Month

Dunedin Public Libraries Don’t Miss a Beat for New Zealand Music Month

Dunedin, 23 April 2014 – Dunedin Public Libraries customers will have the opportunity to hear some of the city’s best performers in a month-long series of free live gigs during May.

The Libraries have supported Dunedin’s music scene for the past 10 years, working closely with Dunedinmusic.com to put together a programme from an eclectic mix of musical genres. Supported by Strawberry Sound and the New Zealand Music Commission, this year has the biggest line-up yet with gigs on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays at the City Library throughout the month, and additional performances at Community Libraries.

Everything from barbershop to blues is represented, and audiences are encouraged to pull up a chair and relax to gentle acoustic lunchtime performances, while evening gigs showcase the talents of three local bands who will set the books hopping on their shelves.

TeenSpace will be alive every Friday with Teenage Kicks, dedicated to high school bands and musical groups exclusively, to give them a taste of performing in front of live audiences and to demonstrate what the next generation of Dunedin music will sound like.

With performances at the City, Mosgiel, Port Chalmers and Waikouaiti Libraries, there will be something for everyone, city wide. Pick up the Music Month programme, or have a look at www.dunedinlibraries.govt.nz/events/new-zealand-music-month for full details.
