Bic Runga’s Acoustic Winery Tour

Bic Runga’s Acoustic Winery Tour

Breaking with the traditional New Zealand Summer beach tour, Bic Runga is heading out to play in the stunning surroundings of some of Aotearoa’s most picturesque wineries and estates.

Bic is taking out a new band and a bagful of the finest tunes from each of her albums, including “Drive”, “Sway”, “Something Good” and “Winning Arrow”, to create a fantastic experience for fans of great music and indulgent times. Wonderful songs, food and wine make good company on summer evenings in these spectacular outdoor locations.

2006 has been another amazing year in Bic’s career. She was made a Member of the New Zealand Order of Merit for her services to music in the New Year’s Honours list and then spent the year touring the world in support of her third album, Birds. And Bic met some famous fans of hers along the way too – she was photographed in London for Mojo magazine with Led Zeppelin legend Jimmy Page and was then pictured in the papers with a smiling Elton John at a UK music awards night.

Bic rounded out the year by taking her tally of NZ Music Awards to eighteen when she was awarded four Tuis for Birds including Best Female Solo Artist and Album of the Year.

Boh Runga joins Bic on the bill for the 2007 Acoustic Winery tour. Boh will be performing songs from her Stellar songbook including the group’s just-released third album, Something Like Strangers.

Don’t miss the opportunity to hear the beautiful vocals of Bic Runga and Boh Runga echoing throughout New Zealand vineyards this summer. Tickets for the tour go on sale next week.
