Singing for all
they are worth:
up, Jason Grice,
By BRIDGET RAILTON
Gore teenager runner-up at Gold Guitar
A potentially devastating tech-
nical glitch in the Southland
Times-Newslink senior finals
wasn't enough to shake Gore's
Jenny Mitchell or her Aust-
ralian singing partner Jason
Instead of hiding in the wings to
regain composure after getting
halfway through a crucial
performance with a microphone
switched off, they picked them-
selves up and launched straight
into the song for a second time.
And it worked, the pair
claiming the overall runner-up
title in the New Zealand Gold
Guitar Awards, won by
Invercargill singer Cheryl
''We didn't realise at first,'' Mr
Grice said of the microphone
''Normally you get foldback
from the microphone but it had
been up and down, quiet and
loud the rest of the time, too.
''You're in the zone.''
Luckily for them, they were able
to remain in the zone for their
second crack at their song, Dear
Diamond, to pull off a second
Fourteen-year-old Jenny, of
Gore, said she was ''a bit
speechless'' after hearing their
result. ''It's my first senior final,
I can't believe it.''
The duo had practised only five
to six times before the event,
due to living on opposite sides of
the Tasman. They even resorted
to using Skype to compose thier
harmonies, they said.
Mr Grice, who arrived in New
Zealand a week before the event,
met Jenny during the Tam-
worth Country Music Festival
earlier this year.
Band-mates Andrew Provan
and David Cambourne joined
him in New Zealand where they
combined with local girls Van-
essa Harvey, Michaela Roy and
Jenny to become a group, Taxi.

Aussie trip will open up
Tamworth, here I come.
That's the call from Invercargill
singer Cheryl Anderson after win-
ning the New Zealand Gold Guitar
Awards senior title The Southland
Times-Newslink final on Sunday
As part of her gold guitar prize,
Anderson would get to perform at
the Tamworth Country Music Festi-
val in Australia next year. She hoped
that would be a major highlight
because it would give her invaluable
''As the gold guitar winner, you get
the chance [to perform when] you
otherwise would not have. You can't
just book a holiday and do that
yourself,'' Anderson said.
''It's the connections that put you in
the position to push yourself. It's a
chance to say, 'here I am and this is
what I've got'.''
And Anderson has got plenty. Not
only did she win the overall title, she
also claimed four out of the five
categories in which she was a
She won awards for country rock,
gospel and New Zealand composition
but it was her performance in the
female vocal solo with Bring On The
Rain, by Jo Dee Messina, that stood
''I was hoping for at least one [win]. I
kept saying to myself, 'as long as I
get one, I'll be happy'.
''I'm over the moon.''
Gold Guitar revelry goes smoothly
Country music fans and concert
revellers kept hoe-down show-
downs to a minimum over the
weekend with no major
incidents reported to Gore
police. Sergeant Sharee Lietze,
of Gore, said there were just a
small number of excess blood-
alcohol while driving incidents
during the weekend and people
were generally well-behaved.
''On the whole, behaviour was
really good as it always is [at the
New Zealand Gold Guitar
Awards],'' she said.
