On her Southern Ranges Tour, we are absolutely stoked to be welcoming Amiria Grenell as our live music THIS SUNDAY!

Amiria recently released her third album through her own label Quiet Bird Records. The stunning album ‘Autumn’ departs from her second album, the Tui Award winning ‘Three Feathers’.

Hailing from a large musical family (her father is country legend, John Grenell), she has spent the past 10 years performing extensively around the country, a regular at arts festivals, and as a member of the Fly My Pretties cast. As well as organizing her own tours, she also performs in folk duo The Swan Sisters and as childrens entertainer Mea the musical pixie.

5-7pm, see you there!
