Musicnet summary to 12 Feb 2021

Kia ora tātou

Summer is still here, buskers are still on the street, and outdoor concerts are still happening here in Nelson. What about where you live? 


For those new to the list in the last 3 weeks, welcome! I look forward to seeing your first post be it a question or a reply to someone else. Each friday I write these summaries of the last week. They are a good way to catch up on what you may have missed, but remember I don’t include every single email thread.
