New Zealand Music Month is now in its second-to-last week and St Mary’s musical director Lucy Dillon takes on the The Courier‘s music-themed Five Questions series.
Q First album you owned?
New Kids on the Block (ha ha).
Q Who are your favourite NZ musicians/bands (five max)?
Hayley Westenra and Crowded House.
Q If you had to listen to just one New Zealand song forever, what would it be?
Dark Waltz by Hayley Westenra
Q What’s your musical guilty pleasure?
Not sure what you mean by “guilty pleasure”, as music is never anything to feel guilty about, but I do use music in the morning to calm the kids when they are at each other.
Q Most recent concert/gig by a NZ musician that you’ve been to?
In Timaru it would be Caitlin Joy at Street Food Kitchen, or [an] actual concert was actually in Newcastle in England seeing Hayley Westenra.
