Ode to Bic Runga

Friendship Fire starter: something that promotes friendship, encourages a catch up or strengthens a bond between two or more people.

My events calender is looking a little bare…so whats a girl to do?

Get out the credit card and book an event….a concert, at the City Recital Hall, Angel Place, Sydney to be precise…to see the one and only, Bic Runga, a captivating free spirited New Zealander perfomer, coming to our shores in May, 2012.

I was introduced to Bic’s music back in the in 1997, when her  smash hit ‘ Sway’ played down the airways…I brought her debut album and have listened intently to any music she has produced over the years.

Her haunting redition of ‘ Somethings got a hold of my heart’ in the 2005 Australian movie ‘ Little Fish’ reignited my love for her melodies…When Bic toured OZ in 2006 or was it 2007, one of my most treasured friends, Jess and I made sure we had front row seats at the Sydney gig.

This post is reading like a roll call of dates, of years gone by…the passing of time…and yet my appreciation for a good tune has endured.

And I am lucky to share this appreciation with Jess…a common love of a strong voice, sweet melody, well crafted lyrics.

Appreciation of music is a common interest, it has been a defining feature of our friendship over the years.

The concert in May is guaranteed to add another layer to our appreication to the power of the human voice….

Till May Ms Runga….Looking forward to it!!
