The Raukatauri Music Therapy Centre is once again extremely fortunate to have the support of the 2011 MORE FM Winery Tour, currently touring throughout New Zealand.
Two of the Centre's Music Ambassadors are among the line-up for the Tour, Brooke Fraser and Opshop's Jason Kerrison. They are joined by Jeremy Redmore from popular Auckland band Midnight Youth for 19 spectacular outdoor shows in some of the most picturesque locations across the country.
RMTC is the charity of choice for the Tour and collections will be made for the Centre at each show.
Now in its fifth year, the popularity of the MORE FM Winery Tour has grown, adding Dunedin and Cromwell to the existing shows in Matakana, Tutukaka, Auckland, Hamilton, Gisborne, Havelock North, Martinborough, Palmerston North, New Plymouth, Tauranga, Taupo, Upper Moutere (Nelson), Blenhiem and Waipara (Christchurch).
As Jason Kerrison says: "The winery tour is a fantastic opportunity to let loose, play a little music, sip a little vino and sample platters of delish tucker from the rich tapestry that is the New Zealand summer. We're looking forward to catching up for a wonderful festival with some old mates."
The Tour's grand finale is on Saturday 5 March, at Villa Maria Estate in Auckland. Tickets can be purchased at www.thewinerytour.co.nz.
Look out for the volunteers with our Raukatauri charity buckets at the show!
