Anna is delighted to be returning to perform in Napier, this time at the breathtaking Church Road Tom McDonald Cellar as part of her new ‘Bold, Brave & Beautiful’ NZ Tour.

Back with a daring new show, bursting on to the stage in a kaleidoscope of colour and sound. New Zealand singer & recording artist Anna Hawkins is not one to be boxed in, bringing a classical edge to the world of folk and pop. Her unparalleled vocal tone and authentic passion have resonated with a growing audience around the world and have driven her in a brave new direction in 2017 as Anna performs and tours her latest offering ‘Bold, Brave & Beautiful.’

Following the success of her previous album ‘Divine,’ which spent five weeks in the NZ charts, Anna’s new show coincides with the release of her latest album ‘Bold, Brave & Beautiful’ promising fans a colourful new world of music exploring the themes of courage, freedom, vulnerability and fun. On top of her brand new original material the tour will see Anna perform songs from musical giants and personal heroes such as Simon & Garfunkel, Barbra Streisand, Michael Jackson, Bob Dylan, Shirley Bassey, Leonard Cohen and more.

Annabelle & Ash

Annabelle & Ash are an acoustic music duo based in Hawke’s Bay, New Zealand. Before 2014, Annabelle & Ash performed regularly around Wellington’s cafes, pubs and attractions before setting sail around the world working with their party band, ‘Latitude’. They travelled through some amazing places including New Zealand, Australia, Pacific Islands, South East Asia, Alaska, America, Mexico, Caribbean, UK and South Europe. Together with Latitude, Annabelle & Ash performed extensively for two years and learnt that being musicians isn’t just about playing music, but delivering a show that every single audience member felt a part of.

James Rochester (JR)

After spending time in the UK and Europe as a dual artist performing and writing, JR returned to New Zealand to begin working on an album. JR released his first album “Another Beginning, Another End” in 2010 and is now working on material to comprise a follow up album. The James Rochester band performed at legendary venues in the UK in 2013 including Half Moon, London and the Cavern, Liverpool. Now back in Hawke’s Bay, JR is working on new material and gearing up for the busy season. For more information check out his Facebook page:



Daniel & Hayley Munro

Imagine a collaboration between Simon, Garfunkel, Johnny Cash and June Carter. The result would probably sound a lot like husband and wife duo Daniel and Hayley Munro. After many years alone with a guitar, recording two albums and playing sad songs on stages with Eric Clapton, Tiki Taane and Don McGlashan, Daniel decided it was time for a change. He waited for a full moon and then used folk magic to conjure the singing fairy Hayley from the mystical north (of New Zealand). This year the pair have been busy writing and recording a song per week. They have finished over 30 songs so far and will be releasing an album of their best in 2018.
