2022 Daphne Gretta Mary Stevens Community Music Scholarship Announced

The annual scholarship looks to assist an individual or group who want to develop their skills, and contribute towards promoting music in the South Kaipara community each year. The 2022 recipient of the Daphne Gretta Mary Stevens Community Music Scholarship is Nancy Howie.


Nancy has been a performing musician for sixteen years, as a lead singer, backing vocalist, lead guitarist, rhythm guitarist, and bassist, as a member of several bands and as a solo artist. She has a proven track record as a songwriter, having released three records with her band Tweed, and a solor ecord as Fathom. The latter received a five-star review from http://www.muzic.net.nz and was showcased on several radio stations and print media throughout the country.

"Above all, I believe that I can offer an experience that is entirely unique and inimitable. I have a profound love for and connection to the Whangaparaoa Peninsula not only as my home, but also as the place where I have developed and matured as a musician. I would relish the opportunity afforded by the scholarship to give music back to this community."


With this scholarship, Nancy is planning a programme of combined audiovisual and live interactive performances of original instrumental music played on homemade instruments.


Congratulations to Nancy, an extremely worthy recipient of this year's Daphne Gretta Mary Stevens Community Music Scholarship.
