SELWYN TIMES Tuesday November 8 2016 7 News Duo ready for Selwyn Sounds • By Tom Doudney BESIDES BOTH living in Lincoln, there is one important thing that former World Cup winning women’s cricketer Katrina Keenan and aircraft technician Dave McKenzie have in common – music. The duo, who perform cover songs together under the name of Southfield, will debut their first original song when they play as one of the opening acts at Lincoln’s Selwyn Sounds concert in March. The show features big name New Zealand acts such as Mi-Sex, Dragon and The Jordan Luck Band. The pair first met at a social gathering at a friends place and when McKenzie got his guitar out to play a few tunes, Keenan took notice. “I thought ‘oh, he’s quite accomplished, I wonder if he would be interested in doing something as a duo’.” As it turned out, he was so they chose a band name based on the street that McKenzie lives on – Southfield Drive – and have now been playing together for about a year. While Keenan (nee Withers) is best known for her six years as a player and further year as coach of national women’s cricket side the White Ferns, this isn’t her first foray into music. A country pop song she wrote and recorded about 15 years ago, called If Ever I’ve Been Loved, got some air play on Christchurch radio and earned her a spot as a solo artist opening for American country and pop artists Charlie Pride and Gene Pitney when they played at the Christchurch Town Hall. Keenan and McKenzie plan to upload their new song to their Facebook page on the day of the concert but have no plans to release an album. “We are both individually busy with our other career paths,” she said. “This is more of a passion and a hobby.” •Selwyn Sounds will be held on March 4, from 11.30am- 8.30pm. Tickets can be purchased via Ticketek and buyers will be able to prepurchase a return bus ride between pick up points in Christchurch or Rolleston and Lincoln Domain. RIGHT NOTES: Dave McKenzie and Katrina Keenan’s band name Southfield was inspired by the Lincoln street on which McKenzie lives. They will debut their first original song as a duo at next year’s Selwyn Sounds concert. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN In Brief PRE-SCHOOL GRANT The Darfield Preschool and Nursery has been granted $1000 by the Malvern Community Board to go towards a water exploration area in its garden for children under two. The cost of the project is $1600. The pre-school and nursery, a charitable trust, has already fundraised the additional $600 through various activities. The community board also approved a grant of $300 to the Courtenay A&P Show for hiring a marquee. CORRECTION In last week’s edition of the Selwyn Times we incorrectly stated that the Coleridge Habitat Enhancement Trust was one of three groups nominated for the Canterbury Aoraki Conservation Board’s biodiversity award. In fact the trust was not nominated and the Avon- Otakaro Forest Park, which we didn’t name, was nominated. COMMUNITY GARDEN OPENS A barbecue to celebrate the opening of the new Kirwee Community Garden will be held on Friday at 5pm. The garden is located at St George’s Church on Courtenay Rd. The opening had been scheduled to take place on October 14 but was rescheduled due to bad weather. for all your brick & blockwork! • Alterations + Extensions • Repairs/ Foundations • Designer Brick BBQs • Fences + Letterboxes • Steps + Ramps • Retaining Wall From minor repairs to alterations or new homes — we do it all. lEE o’NEil brick & blocklaying PH 027 665 8899 or 03 365 3700 Starting Wednesday 9th November 7:30pm - 8:30pm Lincoln High School Main Hall 25 Boundary Road, Lincoln For more info please contact Donna 027 222 6900 | Leona, Mark and the team look forward to being of service for all your motoring needs.
