Stacks of fun

Lead singer of The Doll Drums, Catherine KS, performs at the Nook and Cranny Music Festival at the Dunedin Public Library yesterday.

The rainy Sunday afternoon provided the perfect excuse for young and old to pack into the library for the free festival celebrating Kiwi musicians as part of New Zealand Music Month.

Fifty live acts filled a surprising array of spaces at the library, including singer-songwriter Mia Sohnge who performed an acoustic set in the lift.

Sohnge, who is more accustomed to playing her blend of acoustic folk, jazz and pop in pubs, said while the lift’s acoustics were "interesting", it was enjoyable to be able to perform for a different type of audience.

"It’s great playing for kids for once!"

The Doll Drums’ energetic art rock was also a hit on the ground floor.
