Clara 'super excited' about winery tour

The sound of sweet tunes will ring throughout Tauranga when some of New Zealand's leading musicians take to the stage in the seventh annual Classic Hits Winery Tour.

New Zealand's Got Talent winner Clara van Wel is set to tour the country next month as a guest on the showcase.

Van Wel will join Fat Freddy's Drop, Anika, Boh and Hollie and The Adults on the month-long tourof 17 towns and cities.

The tour will be in Tauranga on March 1, at Wharepai Domain.

The 15-year-old Blenheim student said she was thrilled to have the opportunity to tour the country.

"I'm super-excited to be on my first proper tour and I can't wait to show New Zealand more of my music."

She released her debut single Where Do You Find Love?, the song she performed in the competition grand final, as a single before Christmas.

She is recording her debut album, which will be released in March.

Van Wel has already has some Winery Tour experience.

Last year she was invited to open her local show at Villa Maria Winery, Blenheim, after a promoter saw her clips on You Tube.

Tour co-promoter Campbell Smith said it was exciting to have van Wel back for the full tour this year.

"We have known for more than a year how brilliant Clara is. Now the rest of the country knows and Winery Tour fans are going to get a chance to see her perform live.

"It is rare for us to add an extra artist to the bill, but Clara is such a special talent, she will really add something to what is already an exceptional line-up," he said.

Tour tickets can be purchased on the Winery Tour website and Ticketmaster 0800 111 999 or
