This event has been and gone.
Hayley Westernra has announced an exclusive, intimate UK show at the beautiful Union Chapel in October which will be her only UK show of the year.
She will be accompanied by a small rhythm and string section, and her set will include songs from her latest album, Hushabye, released in June and featuring Sleep On, a song specially written for the Royal Baby by Paul Mealor, who was commissioned to write music for the Royal Wedding.
At the age of 12, Westenra entered a professional recording studio to record Walking in the Air, a demo album done for friends and family; only about 1000 copies were made. Some time later, after finishing her album, both Hayley and her sister, Sophie, busked in the Christchurch streets. The pair drew a large crowd, and one woman asked the girls if they had ever recorded anything. This woman turned out to be a journalist with CTV, and asked Hayley to appear on air. A concert promotion company watched the show, and signed her to the Universal New Zealand Label.
