Beautiful southern birds


Invercargill acoustic duo Bellebird is landing in Queenstown ahead of its first national tour.

The female singer/songwriters are playing at the Queenstown Market on Saturday from 11am, hoping to score a venue booking for the tail-end of their Flying North tour.

Anna van Riel, 27, who plays ukulele and flute, accompanied by her friend Jo Little, 28, on guitar, says they combine “bluegrassy, folky” music with plenty of audience interaction.
