Kirsten Morrell, lead singer of New Zealand band Goldenhorse, will be playing a concert in the Catlins next month.
The front-woman of New Zealand band Goldenhorse will be one half of two performers staging a rare concert in the Catlins later next month.

Kirsten Morrell from Goldenhorse and singer-songwriter Paul Mclaney, who has collaborated with the likes of Anika Moa, will join forces for the Catlins concert on July 26.

The musical event will be staged at the Catlins Woodstock Lodge - home of the popular annual Catlins Woodstock music festival held every January.

Event spokeswoman Natasha Griffiths said it was a rare opportunity for music lovers to hear and appreciate two of New Zealand's musical talents in a remote and rural venue.

"When you are a musician in New Zealand, it's pretty easy to get stuck on the usual tour circuit and forget you are missing out on the best places in the country.

So when the opportunity came up to play the spectacular Catlins, Paul and Kirsten could not pass it by."

Mclaney has been the frontman of band Gramsci and is a member of the SJD band as well as recently making two solo albums, while Morrell has fronted the popular band Goldenhorse.

Her Catlins performance, part of a South Island tour, will be her first show as a solo performer.

Tickets for the show can be made at the Catlins Woodstock Lodge on (03) 4158 583 or through the website
