Whatever you think of the Hon. Judith Tizard, I always knew it was NZ music month because she’d wear the music month T Shirt in the house.
Right now we are in the middle of NZ Music Month- check out the website for all the awesome gigs that are on.
Then check out the beehive website. Click on Arts, Culture and Heritage and check out the non-announcement of NZ Music Month by the Hon.Chris Finlayson.
In 2008 I found 6 press releases from Judith on NZ Music Month. And so far for 2009 0 announcements from Chris Finlayson.
Every Labour Party Annual Conference or Campaign Launch event I have ever been to- has used nothing but NZ Music artists. Che Fu, Oceania’s Hinewehi Mohi, Stellar, Whirimako Black, Goldenhorse, Dame Malvina Major, Sir Howard Morrison, Elemeno P, Te Vaka- just to name the ones I can remember.
Labour believes in NZ Music. Long may it continue.
