Bill Manhire has a new fan

This afternoon I took my 88-year-old mother to the Tauranga Arts Festival to hear Hannah Griffin sing Norman Meehan’s songs that set the poems and lyrics of Bill Manhire. It was a great show and if you ever get the chance to see it, don’t miss it. Mum liked Hannah Griffin’s singing, appreciated Norman Meehan’s piano playing, but she really liked seeing and hearing Bill Manhire reading his poems. She was very taken with Bill.

So after the show I introduced her to him. This is possibly the first time I have ever impressed my mother.
